Think medical malpractice liability isn't a problem? Doctors in Maryland are starting to go without insurance, reports the Washington Times:
Doctors at Montgomery General Hospital are asking administrators to let them work without malpractice insurance because they cannot afford a statewide 33 percent increase in premiums.
The doctors say the rates are so high now that they also are considering whether to discontinue high-risk procedures or to close or move practices out of state.
