Health Care News reported in May of 2016:

The now obsolete SB 58 included a clause protecting doctors from MOC-based discrimination by hospitals.

“It caught a lot of people by surprise,” state Sen. Ralph Alvarado (R) said. “Members of the Kentucky Medical Association, guys I truly respect, expressed their concern saying they couldn’t back [SB 58]. They were going to view it as a mandate on private hospitals and insurance companies.”

 

Alvarado removed the clause before reintroducing the legislation in 2016 as SB 17 and said he will consider restoring the clause “if our hospitals start to block a lot of doctors.”
