Q: I have a mmalpractice case in Indiana Pro Se and one of the defendants does not have to participate in the review panel?
A: Your question appears incomplete. More information is needed to provide you an answer. If you are asking if a defendant doctor or provider is not required to participate in the medical review panel process, more information needs to be provided to give an answer to you. If the provider is not covered by the Medical Malpractice Act, the provider is not protected by the damages caps in the Act and subject to a lawsuit without first going through the panel process. Maybe if you provide some more information, an answer can be given.
