CLE - The State of the Law – Healthcare Payment Reform Legislation: Is Med Mal Reform Coming to a Neighborhood Near You?

Friday, June 22, 2012 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA



Currently, House Bill 4127 and Senate Bill 2270 are being finalized by lawmakers in Massachusetts for a push towards enactment.  Portions of these bills involve measures that may change the way alleged health care injuries will be redressed.  Specifically among both bills’ requirements is the mandate that any person seeking to sue for medical malpractice must provide the prospective defendant written notice of at least 150 days prior to bringing suit (with certain exceptions). Following receipt of this written notice, the  defendant  health  care provider  would be required to provide a detailed written response, with the intended purpose of giving the claimants the  opportunity to settle the case out of court, prior to litigation.

The time is ripe for a discussion of the pros and cons of these bills, and the very philosophy underpinning the topic in general.  Attendees will hear from practitioners on “both sides of the aisle” in the medical malpractice litigation arena, as well as one of the most well-respected lobbyists in Boston as they give us their perspectives. 

Specific Topics:

  • The current status of these bills
  • What these bills actually propose
  • The likelihood that these bills will ultimately go into effect
  • What these bills might mean to practitioners on the plaintiff’s side and on the defense
