MICRA and Prop 103



The litigation lobby frequently asserts that the relatively affordable status of malpractice insurance in California should be credited not to MICRA, the state's pioneering liability-limiting law, but instead to the insurance-company-bashing Proposition 103. The AMA has already addressed this question (see p. 48 of its position paper, PDF; also Feb. 24) and now Californians Allied for Patient Protection, a pro-MICRA group, is out with a more thorough debunking of the claim (PDF)(news release)(another recent CAPP report on MICRA, also PDF). California Physician has a handy FAQ on the issue.
