Tort Reform Doesn't Save Money

According to a new study from the Center for Progressive Reform, medical tort reform won't provide significant savings. The article explains that the costs of malpractice insurance and paying injured patients amounts to only 0.3 % of total healthcare costs each year. The authors blame the insurance companies, saying the focus on tort reform and alleged costs of "defensive medicine" is nothing more than "a politically expedient straw man, allowing policymakers and the insurance industry to ignore or obscure the real drivers of rising medical costs, including the high costs of prescription drugs; the high demand for, and increasing use of, state-of-the-art technology; the growing incidence of chronic diseases; and an aging population that lives longer and consumes more medical care."
