Since its enactment in 1946, the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) has been the legal mechanism for compensating people who have suffered personal injury by the negligent or wrongful action of employees of the U.S. Government.   Under Section 224 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Federally Supported Health Centers Assistance Act of 1992 and 1995, employees of eligible health centers may be deemed to be federal employees qualified for protection under the FTCA.


CASSE Community Health Institute is an eligible deemed facility and is in the process of submitting an FTCA application to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau of Primary Health Care.
