At the House hearing on the bill, the malpractice cap increases were stricken to address these concerns. The remaining text in the bill addressed the regulatory scheme for malpractice insurance carriers. As the remaining text then seemed superfluous while having the potential for some modest cost implications to providers, the bill was defeated on a subsequent vote in the House.

The cap issue will almost certainly be revisited in the future and the CDA has offered its expertise to policymakers as a reasonable voice in future discussions. The CDA will continue to work to ensure that impacts of any malpractice reform are minimized, especially for those who work with underserved populations and Medicaid.
