Medical Liability Reform to put Deficit in Order

Provided by the Health Coalition on Liability and Access

 

The Health Coalition on Liability and Access and ProtectPatientsNow.org is reporting on a document released by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) that details significant savings if meaningful medical liability reforms are enacted.

 

As part of a report titled, "Options for Reducing the Deficit: 2015 to 2024" the CBO estimated that medical liability reforms, including reasonable limits on non-economic damages, implementation of a fair-share rule, a reduction in the statute of limitations, and limits on excessive attorney fees would result in $70 billion in deficit reductions over the next 10 years.
