Broad Health Coalition Continues to Press for Medical Liability Reform
Date:1/14/2010

fying that these provisions do not create new legal standards of care be retained and applied to the entire bill.

Finally, while both the House and Senate health care reform bills contain a provision that intends to protect current and future state-enacted liability reforms, the HCLA would like to strengthen this language and urges House and Senate leaders to include it in their final bill.

"The final legislation must, at a minimum, address the three issues the HCLA has cited in order to ensure that the newly enacted federal health care reforms do not expand health care provider liability and do not roll back, limit or impinge upon existing or future state liability reform efforts," the letter states.

To read the full text of the letter to Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid, visit www.hcla.org.

The Health Coalition on Liability and Access is a national advocacy coalition representing doctors, hospitals, health care liability insurers, employers, health care consumers, and others. HCLA believes federal legislation is needed to bring fairness, timeliness and cost-efficiency to America's medical liability system.
