You already know to contact ISMIE if you receive notice of a lawsuit filed against you. But did you know that the most effective defense against a potential lawsuit begins long before a court date is set?
There are a wide variety of situations in which it is crucial to contact us immediately:
An unexpected outcome – Regardless of whether you think it’s going to develop into legal action, it’s safest to give us a call and talk through what happened.
You’ve received a subpoena, request for medical records or deposition request – Even if you don’t think you’re a target of a lawsuit, contact ISMIE.
You’ve received a summons and complaint, notice of intent to file a claim, attorney’s lien, request for monetary damages or other documents indicating you may be the target of a lawsuit. The sooner you get in touch with us, the better we can plan on how best to protect you.
Unauthorized disclosure of patient health information or patient identifiers, or another security breach, has occurred – Time is of the essence when reporting a claim. If you become aware of a breach, you should contact the ISMIE Claims Division immediately.
