The mission of the Patient's Compensation Fund Oversight Board is to administer, manage, operate and defend the Patient's Compensation Fund in a manner that will timely and efficiently meet the needs and interests of those Louisiana citizens for whom the PCF was created to serve - Louisiana healthcare providers, legitimate injured parties of medical malpractice and the citizens of the State of Louisiana.

The purpose of the Patient's Compensation Fund Oversight Board is to guarantee that affordable, medical malpractice coverage is available to all private healthcare providers and to provide a certain, stable source of compensation for legitimate injured parties of medical malpractice.

The goal of the Patient's Compensation Fund Oversight Board is to ensure the longevity of the Fund by maintaining its financial stability. By establishing and maintaining surcharge rates that are held to moderate levels, the Patient's Compensation Fund strives to effectively maintain sufficient solvency to promptly resolve and fairly compensate legitimate injured parties of medical malpractice and to zealously resist and defend unmeritorious and/or exaggerated claims.
