I am an office manager for a medical practice. We received a letter from an attorney on behalf of a patient who was seen once for mental health/addiction issues and was never heard from again.
The letter states his client wishes to pursue possible legal action and that pursuant to OCGA 33-3-28 the doctors malpractice policy information including liability limits must be provided. It's very suspicious that the attorney wants to know how much insurance coverage there is when NO legal action whatsoever has taken place.
Must the insurance information be provided to the attorney, when no case, claims, or court actions have occurred or even been initiated?
