Medical Legal Defense Program
The MLDP has assembled a team of leading medical and legal experts to create a program designed to be a critical resource to A4M members. In the event that a medical practitioner is facing review by a medical review board or similar organization, the
MLDP will immediately review your case, recommend initial action and refer your case to a qualified attorney within our program.
In addition, medical practitioners can eduate themselves on the latest significant activities of medical review boards in their respective states or across the nation by having access to MLDP's databases of cases and other related resources designed to identify and mitigate risk for physician or medically-based practice groups.
Recently, the A4M and other leading medical/health organizations have observed what appears to be a deliberate effort on the part of many medical boards to prevent physicians from implementing and even advocating apparently safe and beneficial new technologies by claiming that such applications are outsie the scope of accepted medical standard. Regrettably, the history of healthcare is replete with examples of good and caring doctors subjected to improper sanctions.
One of the most challenging and disrupting issues for a physician is to have his/her license threatened by state medical boards sanctions and censorship. Often, such Boards act on the advice of "anonymous complaints" and are lodged in the absence of any proven significant adverse events relating to innovative new therapies.
The MDLP acts to protect the integrity and professional standing of A4M through considered examination of medical and legal concerns raised both within and outside the A4M community.
MLDP Offers optional cyber liability, data breach and HIPAA violation coverage.
