The impact of state medical malpractice reform on individual-level health care expenditures.
This study aims to fill the evidence gap concerning the effect of different types of malpractice reform by examining the general population, not a subgroup or a specific health condition, and controlling for individual-level sociodemographic and health status. It found that only two of the 10 major state-level malpractice reforms had significant impacts on the growth of individual-level health expenditures.
