Medical malpractice rates in Nebraska are low, and have held steady in recent years. As in other states with Patient Compensation Funds, Nebraska physicians will pay both their own premiums and a surcharge to support the stateâ€™s PCF. To participate in the fund, physicians and healthcare providers must submit proof of financial responsibility in the form of an underlying professional liability policy with specified coverage limits, as well as paying the surcharge to the Fund.
