Recent MDACC Advocacy Efforts

Prior Authorizations Reform

The MDACC supports reforming the utilization review policies. HB 785/SB 515 provide a strong starting point.

Non-compete Clauses

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), under direction from President Biden, recently issued a proposed rule which would bar nearly all non-compete clauses in employment contracts and would nullify existing non-competes as “an unfair method of competition.” Non-compete clauses are widely used in physician (and some APP) employment contracts in Maryland and are considered enforceable by Maryland courts. Physician non-competes are not enforceable in 10 states, including California, Alabama, and Massachusetts.

AED Access

MDACC Governor-elect, Dr. Sammy Zakaria has been front and center lobbying on behalf of the Maryland Chapter to enhance access to AEDs in restaurants. Hopefully, these two bills, SB0624/ HB1074 and SB299/ HB288 will become law as they are important bills that will save lives.
