Federal Tort Claims Act

Community Health of South Florida, Inc. (CHI) is a Federally Qualified Health Center and is a ‘‘deemed” facility under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). The FTCA is the legal mechanism for compensating people who may have suffered personal injury by the negligent or wrongful action of employees of the U.S. Government. The FTCA provides medical malpractice coverage to all deemed facilities and its staff. The professional health care staff are considered employees of the Federal Government. A patient who alleges acts of medical malpractice by a deemed health center cannot sue the center nor the provider directly, but must file the claim against the United States Government.
