Top 5 – ‘Maryland is unique in that’

A new, luxury rental development opening in Owings Mills and Gov. Martin O'Malley announcing early successes during his trade mission to India are among the most-read business stories of the week. Also making the list is Disney pulling out of National Harbor and the auction of undeveloped lots in Camden Crossing. Here are the Top 5 stories of the week: 1. Doctors now can’t profit from sending patients for MRIs -- by Ben Mook Nearly nine months after a ruling by the state’s highest court took effect, the Maryland Board of Physicians has fully implemented a ban on orthopedists, cardiologists and other doctors from referring patients for treatment on MRI or CT machines in which the doctors have a financial interest. State law prohibited such self-referrals, but it took a supporting decision by the Court of Appeals in January before the physicians board could move forward with ensuring compliance with the law. A subcommittee of the Maryland Senate this week began a review of the board, which is a semi-independent division of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, amid concerns of its performance as the agency overseeing physician misconduct. 2. Luxury rentals open in Owings Mills -- by Melody Simmons The first residents in a new 375-unit luxury rental development in Owings Mills are moving in following completion of phase one of construction at The View at Mill Run.
