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)."
