On April 24th, the Indiana Senate approved House amendment changes for SB 7: Physician Noncompete Agreements. If signed into law by Governor Holcomb, this law would allow physicians who have been terminated or fired from their positions to seek employment at hospitals outside of their previous network. This bill has been considered a success by lawmakers who believe these types of agreements decrease competition and increase consumer costs. Other lawmakers say that a recent amendment change to this bill, which only applies this ban to primary care physicians, will have negative effects on specialists who want the same protections. There are two more amendments that are up for Senate approval, and lawmakers have until the end of the week to approve changes (according to legislative session deadlines).
