Most Massachusetts doctors face lower cost for malpractice coverage
Boston Globe, May 13, 2008
A study has found that despite assertions that high malpractice rates are driving them out of the state, Massachusetts doctors are paying less than they were in 1990, after adjusting for inflation. Massachusetts ranks fourth in the nation for money paid to settle malpractice cases. It is also one of 21 states described by the American Medical Association as being in a crisis because of high medical malpractice payments and lack of strict laws capping settlements.
