Medical Indemnity Fund

The Medical Indemnity Fund was established in 2011 to provide a funding source for future health care costs associated with birth-related neurological injuries. Enrollees of the Fund are plaintiffs in medical malpractice actions who have received either court-approved settlements or judgments deeming the plaintiffs' neurological impairments to be birth-related.

Effective September 1, 2018, Public Consulting Group (PCG), will replace Alicare as the Medical Indemnity Fund (MIF) Administrator. As MIF’s Administrator, PCG will oversee the MIF enrollment process and provide technical and case management support to enrollees and families. PCG will continue in their current role as the MIF Claims Administrator.

Current MIF enrollees and families will receive more detailed notification by mail. Each enrollee will receive a follow-up letter providing contact information for their assigned case manager. DFS will continue to provide program updates on this website throughout the transition process. We encourage stakeholders to continue to monitor the MIF website. Starting on September 1, if you have questions relating to the transition, please contact PCG at 1-855-NYMIF33 (1-855-696-4333) or by email at MIF@dfs.ny.gov.
