Med CAT Fund Stakeholders Meeting

[32 Pa.B. 1932]

   On March 20, 2002, Governor Schweiker signed Act 13 of 2002 (Act 13). Act 13 confers immediate supervision of the Med CAT Fund (Fund) to the Insurance Department (Department) and transfers the Fund's operation to the Department on October 1, 2002. Act 13 further mandates that the Department utilize third-party administrator services to administer medical malpractice claims submitted to the Fund.

   To facilitate a dialogue between the Department and interested parties, a public stakeholders meeting will be held on Friday, April 19, 2002, at 9 a.m. in the Keystone Building, 125 North Suite, Room C, Harrisburg, PA. The purpose of this meeting is to receive comments about the current operations of the Fund, and in particular, to hear directly from stakeholders about the claims handling process of the Fund.

   Because the Department is interested in hearing from a wide variety of stakeholders, written testimony will be accepted from those unable to attend the meeting. However, even if individuals wish to appear the meeting, the Department strongly urges submitting written comments, as oral presentations will be limited to 10 minutes. Written submissions can be faxed to (717) 772-1969, Attention: Timothy L. Knapp; e-mailed to; or sent to Timothy L. Knapp, Insurance Department, Office of Policy, Enforcement and Administration, 1326 Strawberry Square, Harrisburg, PA 17120.

   Persons wishing to appear before the Commissioner on April 19, 2002, should direct their request to Timothy L. Knapp in writing by April 12, 2002. Questions or concerns regarding this event can be answered by Timothy L. Knapp at (717) 787-0636.

   The meeting location is accessible to persons having disabilities. Persons having special needs or requiring special aides should contact Tracey Pontius at (717) 787-4298.
