Medical malpractice rates in Texas are moderate, but, in recent years, there have been some increases. Additionally, rates can vary a lot by county, with physicians in some parts of the state paying two or three times what they would in other areas of Texas. For example, obstetricians can find rates ranging from about $25,000 to $90,000 or more per year, depending on location.
