Does Delaware Mandate The Collateral Source Rule?

Delaware has partially eliminated the collateral source rule. The defendant can offer evidence of public collateral sources of compensation, including future benefits, and any prospective changes in marital, financial or other status of any person seeking or benefiting from such damages. However, a defendant in a medical malpractice case cannot offer collateral payment evidence such as life insurance or private collateral sources of compensation.
