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.
