Defensive Medicine Doesnt Increase Costs of Health Care
A study by the Journal of Patient Safety has concluded that medical tort reform has little to no effect on overall Medicare cost savings. Comparing data between total state Medicare Reimbursements and Malpractice Reform State Rankings from 1999-2010 did not support the oft touted argument that defensive medicine drives rising health care costs. Sound statistics like these don’t lie.
So, the next time you hear a politician saying they need to limit lawsuits by victims of medical malpractice to battle out of control cost of health care, tell them they are wasting their time and treading on your legal rights for no reason.
