Fact & Fiction


New malpractice lawsuits have been filed in New York at effectively a flat rate for several years.


Awards in medical malpractice cases have risen at a rate equal to medical inflation.


New York has one of the highest number of physicians per capita in the country.


There is little to no discipline of physicians in New York State


The there is no recognition of the fact that the reimbursement rates provided by health insurance providers have dropped each year, drastically cutting into the financial well-being of hospitals and physicians


New York’s medical professionals protect (and subsidize the insurance for) the worst doctors in the state – those who are commercially uninsurable – allowing them to continue to practice while good doctors are forced to add the costs of that harm to their own insurance premiums.


If bad physicians stopped harming their patients, malpractice premiums would drop precipitously.
