    Doctor Day is May 5, 2021

    Wisconsin’s Doctor Day brings together physicians from every specialty and practice environment to meet with their legislators and advocate on health care issues affecting healthcare. The multi-specialty nature of Doctor Day makes it among the most unique advocacy events for physicians in the country.

    Physicians and medical students at all stages of their careers will join together in Madison to take part in policy breakout sessions, hear keynote presentations and participate in a briefing on the day's priority issues. Attendees will then participate in group visits with legislators and legislative staff at the Wisconsin State Capitol. The day will conclude with a Doctor Day reception where you’ll have the chance to connect socially with your friends and peers. 

    Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or brand new to the legislative process, attending Doctor Day will provide you advocacy tools and skills to make your voices heard. Sign up today and join colleagues from all across Wisconsin at the Capitol on May 5th.

    June 18, Wisconsin Health News

    The state’s medical malpractice fund is waiving premiums for the next fiscal year for participating healthcare professionals and providers. 

    The Injured Patients and Families Compensation Fund’s Board of Governors approved the premium holiday on Wednesday.

    The holiday, originally requested by the Wisconsin Medical Society, will run from July 1 to June 30, 2021. 

    Dr. Bud Chumbley, CEO of the Wisconsin Medical Society and a board member, said the action will “provide some financial relief to many of the Wisconsin medical professionals and providers who have been affected by the pandemic and who face ongoing challenges.”

    The fund covers claims beyond state-mandated insurance limits, which are set at $1 million by occurrence and $3 million by aggregate per year. 

    In April, lawmakers signed off on a plan not to increase participation fees for the fund for the next fiscal year.
