Maryland Trauma Physician Services Fund


During the 2003 Legislative Session, the Maryland General Assembly adopted the Maryland Trauma Physician Services Fund to aid Maryland’s trauma system and to reimburse trauma physicians for uncompensated care losses and trauma centers for trauma-related on-call expenses. Since the creation of the Trauma Fund in 2003, the Maryland legislators and TraumaNet have worked together to maintain the viability of the fund, thus the viability of the Maryland Trauma System.

Overall, the purpose of the Maryland Trauma Physician Services Fund is to stabilize the trauma system in Maryland by reimbursing trauma physicians for costs associated with treating trauma patients. TraumaNet would like to thank the Maryland General Assembly for their continued support.
