By Elliott Francis

A handful of new laws are in effect in Maryland this new year.

One new law will require the Maryland Health Care Commission to set up a physician rating system examiner. It will prohibit health insurance from using a physician rating system unless it is approved by a ratings examiner.

Another law requires residents who receive benefits under the Maryland Medical Assistance Program, to receive substance abuse benefits.

A third law authorizing judicial review of permit and license decisions made by the Department of the Environment is also in effect.
