OB/GYNs struggle with malpractice insurance costs

Most of the challenges facilities face in recruiting and compensating OB/GYN physicians can be traced back to a single problem: medical liability insurance. This is one of the most substantial operating costs for OB/GYNs, who pay some of the highest rates of any specialty.

Premiums for an OB/GYN vary greatly depending upon location, ranging from a little more than $20,000 in Min-nesota to more than $275,000 in Dade County, FL, according to the Medical Liability Monitor 2007 Rate Survey.
