Disclosure, Apology, and Offer Process

New Law Protects Healthcare Providers & Insurance Companies, Not Patients

Massachusetts has enacted a healthcare cost reform law that includes a new "Disclosure, Apology and Offer" (DA&O) process to address medical malpractice claims. As part of the DA&O model, healthcare providers, and their insurance companies are required to notify patients when malpractice may have occurred, explain the circumstances of the incident, and offer financial compensation when appropriate.

If you have received a disclosure letter from your medical provider, do not hesitate to contact A Good Law Firm immediately. The new law does not protect your rights as a patient, and furthermore, has enabled medical providers and insurance companies to intimidate patients into settling for less than they need.
