The latest edition of MLMIC’s The Albany Report focuses policyholder attention on updates regarding the wrongful death bill.

Specifically, the December 2022 issue of The Albany Report details:

  • the serious negative consequences this legislation would have for all New York healthcare providers and facilities;
  • MLMIC’s lobbying efforts in partnership with the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY) and the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS);
  • the current status of the bill; and
  • how physician policyholders can register their opposition to this harmful legislation.
