Collateral Source Rule Reform: HB 1 (1987).
Provides for awards to be offset by payments of collateral
Provides for awards to be offset by payments of collateral source benefits that have been paid or are likely to be paid within 60 months of judgment, unless the source of reimbursement has a subrogation right. The statute providing offset of collateral source benefits received by a plaintiff violated the right to jury trial, due process, equal protection, right to open courts, and right to meaningful recovery provisions of the State Constitution.
