Medical Indemnity Fund

In order to afford all interested parties an opportunity to be heard regarding the proposed amendments to the MIF regulations published on April 20, 2016, the Department will, at a minimum, consider any public comments submitted by July 6, 2016.

The Medical Indemnity Fund ("Fund") was established by Chapter 59 of the 2011 Session Laws of the State of New York. The Fund is designed to provide a funding source for future health care costs of plaintiffs in medical malpractice actions who have suffered birth-related neurological injuries as the result of medical malpractice during a delivery admission, and are “qualified plaintiffs” as defined in the law.

The New York State Department of Financial Services is designated by law as the administrator of the Fund. This website is designed to provide basic information regarding operation of the Fund and to assist qualified plaintiffs in the application and enrollment process.
