Claims History Reports

What is a Claims History Report?

A Claims History is a report of claims and lawsuits asserted against a medical professional.

How to Request a Claims History Report

To request professional liability coverage information and/or claim history of a current or former Sanford provider, you must provide a completed and signed Sanford Authorization for Release of Provider Claims History and submit the authorization with a completed Professional Liability Coverage Verification and Claims History Request.   

The report will only be released when accompanied by the Sanford Authorization for Release of Provider Claims History signed by the healthcare provider. Requests are processed in the order they are received. Most requests are processed within 14-21 business days. Please do not submit repeat requests.
