“Our decision to appeal is driven by our firm belief that the Department of Insurance hearing officer got it wrong when he issued his final decision,” said Robert Seligson, CEO of the North Carolina Medical Society. “To reiterate, our position has always been simply that a contract must be honored. One side cannot unilaterally change the conditions of their legal promise to the other. Otherwise, why have an agreement? Both sides in a contract need to consent to any proposed changes.”
