Folmer Bill Eliminating Insurance Reports Becomes Law

HARRISBURG – Senator Mike Folmer’s legislation to eliminate the requirement for medical malpractice and self-insurers to file annual reports with the Pennsylvania Insurance Department has become law as Act 22 of 2013.

“Industry experts have told me these reports are not read nor used for any purpose, and a classic case of doing something because it’s always been done that way, or is required by some law or regulation but no one knows why it’s done,” said Folmer. “This new law is a step in the right direction to enhance government efficiency and reduce government bureaucracy.”
