Medical Malpractice not to blame for rising health costs, panel says

side note: The Brookings Institute hosted a panel that indicated the cost of medical malpractice lawsuits is not the driver of rising healthcare costs in the United States.

WASHINGTON — Curbing medical malpractice litigation isn’t the “silver bullet” that’s needed to slay the werewolf of rising health care costs, a panel of academics said Tuesday.

“Health policy myths become convenient truths,” said Gregg Bloche, a graduate of the medical and law schools at Yale and a former visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution. Bloche has written extensively on the implications of policy for doctors and patients.
