Missouri regulators are looking for legislation that will give them more authority to crack down on doctors who violate state law. The Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration is proposing legislation that would allow the board that oversees doctors to better protect patients. Key provisions of the proposal will include giving the board the ability to immediately suspend the license of a doctor believed to be a danger to patients, expedite discipline of doctors who commit fraud, and greatly improve transparency of the information about doctors available to the public.
