Medical malpractice insurance companies have started turning a profit in West Virginia since the Legislature passed several rounds of limits on malpractice lawsuits, state Insurance Commissioner Jane Cline told lawmakers Sunday.
With insurers doing better in the Mountain State than the national average, Cline said that in the past year, at least three companies have sought to reduce the rates they charge doctors.
Sort of puts a lie to the claim that malpractice tort reform didn't affect insurance rates, doesn't it.
