Ama Policy

Protecting Physicians at the Peer Review Process in the Current Managed Care Environment H-375.973


Our AMA: (1) will work with the Federation of State Medical Boards to adopt a policy to support state legislative efforts to protect the integrity and effectiveness of the peer review process by prohibiting managed care companies from automatically terminating providers who have been sanctioned by state medical boards or by information being provided by the National Practitioners Data Bank without providing due process to the provider; and (2) espouses as policy the guarantee of due process and civil rights safeguards to physicians in peer review and in credentialing.
