Clear data (and charts), available here.
I’m not going to disagree that the malpractice system needs fixing. Far too many claims are filed that have no merit. In addition, many more are never brought to trial that absolutely do. I completely support efforts at malpractice reform. … But it’s not the solution to our high health-care spending. Tort reform does not equal cost control.
Excellent piece from the Washington Post by Aaron Carroll. [NPT]
