WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 20, 2017 – Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed KY SB 4, An Act Relating to Medical Review Panels, into law March 16. This law establishes a medical review panel system for use in civil litigation relating to health care providers, including assisted living and personal care home providers. Malpractice claims against healthcare providers covered in this law will be reviewed by a medical review panel, which serves as an administrative body to determine if a case involves malpractice before proceeding to court. The Kentucky Assisted Living Facilities Association (KALFA), an Argentum state partner, actively supported the passage of this legislative initiative, as it will reduce unnecessary and costly litigation. The law is expected to go into effect by July 1, 2017.
