LEMLA was initially created by the 1991 Oregon Legislature and scheduled to operate and pay claims through June 30, 1993. After reviewing the claim and payment information for the designated period, the 1993 Oregon Legislature repealed the sunset provision and established LEMLA as a permanent, ongoing program.
The purpose of LEMLA is to provide a means for reimbursing medical providers for medical expenses incurred from injuries sustained by an individual as a result of law enforcement activity. Claims are only paid out of the account when recovery from the injured person and/or their insurance carrier fails. Liability for payment by LEMLA ends when the individual is released from actual physical custody.
LEMLA is established separate and distinct from the General Fund. The account is fully funded from amounts collected in state courts as monetary obligations in criminal actions.
