Tort Reform Not Working In Ohio

Comments Off

One of the benefits of tort “reform”, according to its supporters, is that reform is supposed to increase access to care by making more physicians available. But in Ohio, the data is now in. Five years after the state enacted medical malpractice caps, there are fewer doctors delivering babies.

Recent data also questions the claim that tort reform was necessary due to rising insurance rates. Data now suggests that the insurance rates have slowed across the board and the rates are generally equal in states that did not enact tort reform and those states that did enact some type of reform.
