New York 2022 Regular Legislative Session Concludes

MLMIC’s The Albany Report offers policyholders a concise, insiders’ view of pending legislative, regulatory and political developments that have an impact on physicians, dentists, hospitals and other healthcare professionals practicing in New York State. The latest edition of MLMIC’s The Albany Report focuses policyholder attention on the conclusion of New York’s 2022 Regular Legislative Session.

Specifically, the June 2022 issue of The Albany Report details these items of interest to the New York State medical professional liability insurance market:

  1. several liability-expanding bills heavily promoted by the New York State Trial Lawyers Association (NYSTLA), including the Grieving Families Act;
  2. medical malpractice peer review and quality improvement programs for qualifying medical group practices; and
  3. medical liability reform legislation that would in the aggregate significantly reform New York’s one-sided civil justice system in the medical professional liability arena.

Together with our medical partner organizations, we’ll continue to seek sensible reform that balances the uneven playing field when it comes to medical malpractice lawsuits in New York.
