What Should Medical Malpractice Rates Be?

Everyone wants good medical malpractice rates.

Insurance that’s comprehensive and relevant in coverage, people also really want medical malpractice insurance rates that aren’t cringe-worthy. 

What factors go into determining medical malpractice rates?

Do the medical malpractice rates you pay now reflect changes in your field or state? 

Let's look at some key factors that come into play. 

1. The field in which you practice. Neurosurgeons are at a higher risk than a nurse practitioner. 

2. The state where your work.  Medical malpractice rates are state-regulated, not federal, which causes large differences in coverage costs. This is, in part, because tort laws vary by state. For example, medical malpractice insurance rates in L.A. are significantly lower than in Miami-Dade, Florida. 

3. Location and history of claims of your place of employment.

 4. Policy liability limits. A company’s policy limits have a direct impact on medical malpractice insurance rates.
