Will treating under served patients put me at risk?

Recent research suggests that low-income patients are less litigious than other patient groups. Like other charity care provided within your practice, treatment of Care Connection patients is covered by your malpractice insurance. In addition, Oklahoma provides volunteer immunity for providers who treat patients for free that were referred by free/charitable clinics.
