 The Insurance Department (Department) is conducting a medical malpractice data call to study the availability of additional basic coverage capacity in the medical malpractice marketplace in this Commonwealth. This data call is required by section 711(d)(3) of the Medical Care Availability and Reduction of Error (MCARE) Act (40 P.S. § 1303.711(d)(3)).

 Consistent with prior data calls promulgated under section 711(d)(3) of the MCARE Act, the cover letter, exhibits and templates are available on the Department's web site at (select ''Companies,'' then ''Industry Activity,'' scroll to ''Product and Rate Activity,'' then ''Data Calls''). Additionally, an e-mail announcing the data call has been sent to all medical malpractice insurers with positive direct written premium in this Commonwealth in 2021.

 Each insurer providing medical professional liability insurance in this Commonwealth is required to respond to the data call no later than March 6, 2023. Insurers with positive medical malpractice direct written premium in this Commonwealth in 2021 are identified in Exhibit 2 of the data call and a response is required from each insurer listed. Data for more than one insurer should not be combined into a single submission.

 Insurers have the option to designate their National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Annual Statements as their response to the data call. If this designation is chosen, the Department will access the necessary Annual Statement data from the NAIC web site and the insurer will have no further reporting requirement.

 Questions regarding this data call should be directed to Shannon Kost, Actuarial Associate, (717) 783-4308,

Acting Insurance Commissioner
