State Caps on Damages

Summary of state caps on damages, insurance requirements and patient compensation funds: I put this together as we were briefing our case on non-economic damages. Draws heavily from AMA resources but also direct primary source verification. I've done my best to be accurate but laws are changing. A few details could not be verified in every instance- including whether some caps applied per claimant or per occurrence.

2018 DOJ Letter on Board Certification

Letter from Robert Potter, US Department of Justice to The Honorable Dan K. Morhaim, MD regarding Maryland .ouse Bill 857

ABMS Statement on DOJ Maryland Opinion

"On September 10, 2018 the Antitrust Division of U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) responded by letter to a request by Dr. Dan K. Morhaim, a Maryland state legislator and a board member of the National Board of Physicians and Surgeons, for input on a bill in the Maryland legislature that would, if enacted, restrict hospitals, health plans, and others from making their own independent judgments about the value of board certification in the credentialing of physicians. The request appears to have been motivated by Dr. Morhaim’s objections to the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program of physician certifying Boards that are members of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS)."
