AS 08.20.185. Peer Review Committee; Confidentiality.
- (a) In addition to peer review authorized under AS 08.01.075
, the board may establish a peer review committee to review complaints concerning the reasonableness or appropriateness
of care provided, fees charged, or costs for services rendered by a licensee to a patient. A review conducted by a peer
review committee under this section may be utilized by the board in considering disciplinary action against a licensee
but the results or recommendations of a peer review committee are not binding upon the board. A member of a peer review
committee established under this section who in good faith submits a report under this section or participates in an
investigation or judicial proceeding related to a report submitted under this section is immune from civil liability
for the submission or participation.
- (b) The board shall charge a complainant a fee, established under AS 08.01.065, for peer review under this section.
- (c) Patient records presented to a peer review committee for review under this section that were confidential before their
presentation to the committee are confidential to the committee members and to the board members and are not subject to
inspection or copying under AS 40.25.110 - 40.25.125. A committee member or board member to whom
confidential records are presented under this subsection shall maintain the confidentiality of the records. A person
who violates this subsection is guilty of a class B misdemeanor.
