WASHINGTON — The Defense Department released guidelines Thursday on how troops can now sue the military for medical malpractice, which they had been barred from doing for more than 70 years.

The Pentagon will begin paying service members or their estates next month for substantiated claims of less than $100,000 that were filed within two years of a medical malpractice incident, according to the information published in the Federal Register.
