On Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. (ET) the Senate Health and Welfare Committee will conduct a hearing for Senate Bill 119 — legislation to implement a medical review panel process for cases brought against health care providers. The goal of SB 119 is to put an end to the growing number of meritless lawsuits that increase Kentucky’s health care costs and plague Kentucky’s legal system.
Medical malpractice liability has taken a significant financial toll on Kentucky’s health care providers, increasing costs for consumers and diverting critical funds away from patient care.
See the fact sheet on Senate Bill for a quick overview of the legislation.
