The Indiana Medical Malpractice Act limits awards to $1.8 million. The Healthcare provider’s liability is limited to $500,000. The Indiana Patient Compensation Fund pays the balance, if any, up to the limit. The fund covers a wide range of health care providers. The list includes doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), optometrists, hospitals, HMOs, ambulance services, blood banks, and home health agencies.
Is there a limit on how much an injured person or family may receive in a medical malpractice claim?
