ACEP worked closely with the offices of U.S. Rep. Roger Marshall, MD (R-KS), and U.S. Rep. Raul Ruiz, MD (D-CA), on the development of H.R. 6910, a bill introduced in the House on May 15 that would ensure every emergency physician has medical staff due process protections. The legislation would require the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to issue regulations that would provide due process rights for physicians furnishing emergency medical services. Specifically, the regulations would ensure physicians who are employed by or under contract with a hospital to furnish emergency medical services have a fair hearing and appellate review through appropriate medical staff mechanisms before any termination or restriction of their professional activities could be instituted. These protections could not be denied through third-party contracts. Read ACEP’s support letter.
