The Spring 2017 edition of Dental Dateline – the newsletter for MLMIC-insured dentists – has been added to our online publications’ library here. The latest edition, which will also be mailed to policyholders, includes the following:
a cover story about the noncompliant dental patient (written from a risk management perspective);
a look at expanded liability related to failure to warn patients of medication side effects;
a case study about successful management of a noncompliant patient;
information for dentists regarding an alternative to certified mail;
risk management tips for documenting follow-up of noncompliant patients;
a description of premium discounts available to new dentists via the NYSDA-MLMIC Program; and
an announcement about live customer service operators replacing MLMIC’s automated phone system.
MLMIC is holding its spring Network Meetings throughout May and June in multiple locations across the state. These programs are designed to provide risk management education to our insured physicians, medical directors, facility risk managers, office practice administrators, nursing staff and other healthcare professionals.
A new MLMIC publication, The Albany Report, is intended to enhance this advocacy by providing policyholders with a concise, insiders’ view of pending legislative, regulatory and political developments that have an impact on the NYS medical malpractice insurance marketplace.
