MSSNY President Shares his thoughts on the Recent Wrongful Death Liability Bill

Parag Metha, MDPresident- Medical Society of the State of New York

 "The recent legislation would exponentially increase the   damages that are awardable under New York’s wrongful-death   statute.  One actuarial study concluded the increased damages   and the new lawsuits this bill would trigger would increase   liability insurance costs for New York’s doctors and hospitals by nearly 40 percent."

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the final rule for the CY 2022 Medicare physician fee schedule. American Medical Association (AMA) staff are thoroughly analyzing the 2400+ page rule and will provide a comprehensive summary in the near future. Notably, the 2022 Medicare conversion factor will be reduced by approximately 3.85% from 34.8931 (2021) to 33.5983. This is largely a result of the expiration of a 3.75% increase to the conversion factor at the end of calendar year 2021, as averted in 2021 by Congressional action. The AMA continues to strongly advocate for Congress to avert this significant cut and extend the 3.75% increase for 2022, as it further compounds the growing financial instability of physician practices due to the severe reduction in revenue caused by the continued COVID-19 PHE.

MSSNY Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund
The devastating 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck the southwestern region of Haiti killed nearly 2,000 people and injured close to 10,000. Unfortunately, those numbers are expected to rise. The disaster resulted in toppled buildings and homes and damaged infrastructure and roads, cutting off access to some areas in the southwest, and forcing many to flee their homes in fear that they may collapse.

The people of Haiti desperately need help. Please consider making a donation to the MSSNY Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund. Donations will be sent to organizations assisting Haiti with urgent needs, including medical supplies and equipment.
