Assessment Rating Information
Reporting Medical Malpractice Coverage - A reminder to insurers and agencies of their responsibility under the Mcare Act to make certain that the applicable Mcare assessment is timely collected, reported and remitted to Mcare on behalf of each participating health care provider and eligible entity it insures within 60 calendar days of the issuance (inception) of a basic insurance coverage policy.
Mcare will not provide indemnity coverage or a defense for a claim that is made or occurs if a health care provider, eligible professional corporation, eligible professional association or eligible partnership fails to pay all monies due to Mcare prior to that claim being first reported to the health care provider, the primary insurer or Mcare for the basic insurance coverage period that is applicable to the occurrence that is the basis for the claim (40 P.S. §§ 1303.701, et seq.).
Mcare will begin formal noncompliance actions against those health care providers for whom no coverage has been properly reported or remitted to Mcare.

New Assessment Payment Option Available -
Mcare is able to accept assessment payments through an electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment process. The EFT may be an ACH or wire transfer. The EFT process provides primary insurers with alternative payment methods, in addition to paper checks. We strongly recommend the use of EFTs when payments are made.
To learn more about this new payment option and the minimum standards, please send an email to Mcare’s Fiscal Unit at firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest. We will have an Mcare representative call you to explain the program. We thank you in advance for considering Mcare's preferred method of payment.
