The Good and the Bad: Healthcare Reform and Medical Liability
The Patient’s Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has very little to do with the medical professional liability market. Even so, the impact of the historical reform measure will generate both good and bad side effects in the medical liability market, says Jim Weider, CEO of the Cooperative of American Physicians. The integration of care in healthcare will afford the insurance industry an opportunity to integrate as well, and that’s a good thing, he says. As for the bad, the future promises an environment where doctors will be asked to do much, much more. That could lead to problems and claims.
