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.”
