What Happens After the Medical Review Subcommittee Makes Its Recommendation?
- That recommendation is considered by the Board at its next regularly scheduled meeting.
- Prior to each Board meeting, the Board receives a packet of information, including a stack of Reports of Investigations. Each Board member is charged with reading each ROI, which includes the summary of the case from the MRSC, along with the complaint, suit or claim and the response letter from the physician/ licensee. Thus, a timely response letter from the physician or physician assistant against whom the complaint or suit is brought is crucial, in that the entire Board reads this information.
- The Board then decides by majority vote on a course of action.
