The Montana Medical Legal Panel

MMLP Exemption Survey

The Montana Medical Legal Panel was created to prevent, where possible, the filing in court of actions against health care providers and their employees for professional liability in situations where the facts do not permit at least a reasonable inference of malpractice and to make possible the fair and equitable disposition of such claims against health care providers as are or reasonably may be well founded. The Montana Medical Legal Rules of Procedure explains the process for filing a claim, the steps taken after a claim is filed and the review process used by the MMLP. The laws related to the Montana Medical Legal Panel can be found at here.
