Collateral Source Rule Reform: SB 2078 (1986): Minn. Stat. Ann. § 548.36.
Permits the admissibility of evidence of collateral source payments only
Permits the admissibility of evidence of collateral source payments only for the court’s review. Provides for awards to be offset by collateral source payments, unless the source of reimbursement has a subrogation right. The statutory provision allowing a court to offset collateral source payments was not unconstitutionally vague and did not violate the due process, equal protection, or right to remedy provisions of the State Constitution. Johnson v. Farmers Union Central Exchange, Inc., 414 N.W.2d 425 (Minn. App. 1987).
