Who Will Fight for Us While We are on the Front Lines?

It is outrageous that while physicians across the State are putting their own health on the line responding to the coronavirus outbreak, the MRT2 is seeking to impose a new $52 million cost on the backs of the nearly 17,000 physicians enrolled in the Excess Medical Malpractice Insurance Program. 

This essential program has been in existence for over 30 years to ameliorate the outrageous liability costs we face in New York. We thank the Assembly and Senate for their commitment to the program and urge them to continue to fight to ensure full funding for this program as they work to finalize a State Budget. As New York’s doctors are on the front lines of this outbreak fighting for their patients, our public officials should fight for our doctors.”
