Poll Find Americans Want Medical Liability Reform

Monday, May 16, 2011

The Health Coalition on Liability and Access (HCLA), of which ASA is a member, released the results of a nationwide poll that showed Americans are in favor of Congress passing medical liability reform.  Currently, the House of Representatives is considering H.R. 5, a bill that would address medical liability costs.

The survey found:
• 58 percent of respondents want Congress to pass medical liability reform, and only 23 percent were opposed to reform.

• 71 percent of poll participants believe their access to affordable high-quality health care is threatened because medical liability costs are forcing good doctors out of medicine.

• 57 percent of those surveyed said medical liability lawsuits are one of the primary reasons behind rising health care costs.
