The Healthcare Reform Statute, Chapter 224 of the Acts of 2012 is now
effective, and has several clauses that change the process for bringing medical
negligence claims. Among other things the new statute requires a notice
provision and waiting period, raises the statutory cap for claims against
medical nonprofits entities, lowers the interest case in medical negligence
cases even further, and establishes a framework for providers to apologize to
patients without the statement becoming admissible in a subsequent
proceeding. Our panel will discuss the details of the new statute.
