Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 930 - This act closes portions of hospital records and meetings in certain situations. It provides that a governing body or related body of a public hospital may close records or meetings that pertain to strategic planning, marketing, and the terms or conditions of certain contracts, including physician contracts. Information about the parties involved and the duration of such contracts will, however, be public record and physician compensation amounts will be included in the organization's financial statements. Contracts entered into by a public hospital shall become public records upon the termination or completion of the contract. The disclosure of any other records will be governed by Chapter 610, RSMo.

The provisions of this act are similar to ones contained in CCS/HS/HCS/SB 858 and HCS/HB 1718 (2000).
