Maryland Trauma Physician Services Fund

The Maryland Trauma Physician Services Fund provides payments to offset the costs of uncompensated and undercompensated medical care provided by trauma physicians to patients at Maryland's designated trauma centers; stipends to trauma centers to offset the trauma centers' on-call and standby expenses; and grant funding to trauma centers for certain equipment. The Fund is financed by a $5 surcharge on motor vehicle registrations.
