THE ELASTICITY OF PHYSICIAN SUPPLY AND MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LITIGATION IN THE UNITED STATES pp. 19-31 $0.00
Authors:  (Brandon Roberts, Premier Insights, Inc. and Euel Elliott, University of Texas at Dallas)
Abstract:
The issue of medical malpractice reform has occupied state legislatures for the last several
years, due to the concerns expressed by physicians and others that the costs of malpractice
litigation are harming the delivery of medical services in the United States. Using data from
the 1997-2001 time period, the impact of malpractice litigation on physician supply in the
U.S. is estimated. The results indicate that medical malpractice litigation is a significant factor
in reducing physician supply in the U.S. More specifically, we find that laws in those
jurisdictions that have direct influences on medical liability have more impact than those with
an indirect effect. We conclude that the concerns over medical malpractice litigation are not
misplaced or exaggerated, and that policymakers should strongly consider those policy
changes that exert a more direct influence on litigation.
