Malpractice Insurance

The Washington Monthly
... here's another study of medical malpractice that comes to the same conclusion as practically every other study done in the past couple of years: the medical malpractice 'crisis' is mostly an invention of insurance companies and their friends in Congress. As the chart below shows, malpractice payouts have grown at about the same rate as medical costs in general. In 1992, malpractice payouts amounted to about 0.3% of total healthcare spending and 1.2% of physician and clinical spending. In 2002, the numbers were....0.3% and 1.2%.
