Medical malpractice suits are responsible for the increases in medical costs in so many ways.  Preventive medicine as practiced by most physicians is increasing the cost of health care. Malpractice insurance is skyrocketing owing almost exclusively to inordinately high settlements. And a diminishing number of capable people are going into specialties where risk for lawsuits is high.  When doctors become targets, everyone suffers in health care delivery.

  • Many, many studies have been done on the effect medical malpractice has on the practice and delivery of medical care. It has been shown that by explaining things to patients instead of “shutting down,” doctors can avoid claims.

    If a doctor is ordering tests and billing insurance for them based solely upon his fear of a malpractice claim, he is not ordering tests based upon medical necessity and is thus committing insurance fraud.
