House Passes Med Mal Reform

House Republicans had just enough votes to pass a med mal reform bill on Wednesday.  The bill would impose a $250,000 limit on non-economic damages in med mal suits that involve coverage provided through a federal program such as Medicare or Medicaid or to coverage that is partly paid by a government subsidy or tax benefit.  In addition, the bill would curb attorneys' fees and impose a three-year statute of limitations (with some exceptions).  WaPo has the story.
