Generally speaking the compensation of damage for patients in the health care system can take place in three ways: through the social insurance system, including funds, through private insurers’ schemes and through the liability system. The focus of this paper is the compensation through private insurers’ schemes in the Macedonian legal system. This model of compensating damage in the health care system differs significantly from the liability system. The central issue in the compensation through insurers’ schemes is whether the insurance conditions have been met, and the circumstances under which the damage has occurred are of little or no relevance. On the other hand, under the liability system the damage can be compensated only if a medical practitioner or an institution can be shown to be liable. Presenting the characteristic of Macedonian liability insurance law through the normative solutions, other legal sources of medical liability insurance, comparative legal theory and realization of the liability insurance in practice aims to lead to conclusion about the meaning of this institute in Macedonian law and practice.
