Contact Legislators and Gov: Protect Excess Medical Malpractice Program

March 30, 2020 6:31 PM | Deleted user

There is an extremely concerning proposal contained in the Governor’s Medicaid Redesign Team recommendations that would require the nearly 17,000 physicians currently enrolled in the Excess Medical Malpractice Insurance program to bear 50% of the cost of these policies. 

This proposal would thrust over $50 million of new costs on the backs of community-based physicians at a time when they are seeing a substantially smaller number of patients in their practices, and facing extraordinarily difficult decisions as to whether how to meet payroll and/or to lay off administrative staff. 

Moreover, these new costs would be imposed on the thousands of physicians who are currently on the “front lines” of responding to the coronavirus outbreak. 

Contact your elected representatives and voice your objection
