Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice Insurance Verification

This section of the Department of Legal Affairs and Organizational Integrity website provides information needed to verify medical malpractice insurance coverage to physicians and allied health professionals of LSU Health Shreveport.

From time to time, verification of malpractice insurance and claims histories are requested by outside entities as physicians and allied health professionals perform contract work as LSU Health Shreveport employees or as programs are completed at our facility and verification becomes necessary in seeking employment with another health care facility.  

In keeping with current privacy laws, a release signed by the requesting physician or allied health professional must be provided to our office before we will release confidential malpractice insurance coverage information or malpractice claims information.  

If a form has not been completed as part of the new employee packet at a new health facility, our office has a form shown below that can be printed and provided to our office.  The form may be faxed, scanned and emailed or mailed.  It cannot be completed and submitted online.  Please complete each area of the form including the portion to indicate name address and contact information of the requesting institution.

On receipt of a request, our office will then request a claims history from our insurer, the Louisiana Office of Risk Management, in Baton Rouge, LA.  Once a response is received from their office, we will complete the verification process and provide our response to the requesting facility.
