Congress considers alternates to capping malpractice awards


Since 1995, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed legislation eight times to cap noneconomic damage awards in malpractice cases to $250,000. Each time, the bills were shot down in the Senate. As a result, the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health pledged to work together to develop new solutions to medical malpractice reform, according to American Health Line (7/14/2006).
