Article
Last week marked the halfway point of the 2020 legislative session and there are several health care related Bills to watch as the Legislature resumes work this week. These Bills were heard within the first half of the session and now have a better chance of being signed into law as any Bill not heard in the first half of the session is now unlikely to be referred for consideration to either Indiana’s House of Representatives or Senate. Some Bills that are worth noting currently are: HB1317, which refines the Health Care Advance Directive statute; HB1008, which lessens the requirements to transfer a professional license to Indiana; SB3 and HB1004, which address health care provider billing practices; and SB101, which increases the aggregate damages cap for an adult wrongful death action from $300,000 to $700,000.
