Title: Medical Malpractice Claims by Members of the Uniformed Services 

Department of Defense (DoD) is finalizing an interim final rule to implement requirements of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2020, permitting members of the uniformed services or their authorized representatives to file claims for personal injury or death caused by DoD health care providers in certain military medical treatment facilities. Because Federal courts do not have jurisdiction to consider these claims, DoD issued this rule to provide uniform standards and procedures for considering and processing these actions.
