White House Sets $25 Million for Medical Liability Project
The White House said on Thursday it had allocated $25 million in grants to states for a pilot program that would seek to ease the impact of malpractice suits on the U.S. medical system, as President Barack Obama pushes for sweeping healthcare reform.
Obama offered the plan in a speech to Congress last week in connection with the wishes of many legislators, particularly Republicans, that medical malpractice laws be reformed as part of an overhaul.
