The Health Care Quality Improvement Act of 1986 (HCQIA) provides good-faith immunity from state and federal liability for people participating in the peer review process. CIMRO's contracts with our clients specifically address the fact that our PR decisions are considered part of internal quality improvement processes, which further affirms the protections afforded under HCQIA.
CIMRO also maintains a professional liability policy, which extends coverage to peer reviewers performing services for CIMRO. The Errors & Omissions policy has limits of $4 million per claim and $4 million in aggregate. This legal protection covers all peer reviewers, CIMRO staff and Board members carrying out peer review responsibilities. A copy of the insurance policy is available from CIMRO upon request.
