Real Healthcare Reform for Delaware

September 23, 2009

 

States Given Access to $25 Million for Medical Liability Reform Project

On September 17, the administration announced that it would make $25 million available to support state medical liability reform projects. States can compete for grants up to $3 million that take up to three years to complete. States can also compete for grants up to $300,000 for technical assistance. A guide on existing initiatives is scheduled to be released in December. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, within the Department of Health and Human Services will administer the grants with award announcements expected in early 2010. Grants will be awarded to those projects that seek to reduce preventable injuries, increase communication between doctors and patients, and ensure a fair and timely method for compensation where it is appropriate. A funding opportunity will be posted within the next 30 days, which will be followed by a 60 day application period.
