Md. Med-Mal Refunds in the Works

April 5, 2005

A measure correcting some flaws in last year’s medical malpractice reform legislation in Maryland, the subject of an emergency legislative session, has been allowed to go into effect by Gov. Robert Ehrlich.

The corrective measure enables Maryland doctors to get refunds for their premiums.

Physicians may find out as early as next week how much money they’ll get and how to go about getting refunds, said Michael Preston, executive director of MedChi, the Maryland State Medical Society. He said insurers plan to notify doctors within the next two weeks.

“This bill means a lot to doctors. It allows the process to move ahead,” Preston said.
