Medical Malpractice Payments Not Behind Soaring Medical Costs

If you are looking for what is behind rising health care costs, the answer is NOT to be found in medical malpractice lawsuits.  A new study by Public Citizen shows no correlation between medical malpractice payments and health care costs.  Since 2003, both the frequency of medical malpractice payments on behalf of doctors and the amount of money paid out have fallen every single year, according to the government's National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB), which tracks such payments.
