Earlier this month, the Obama Administration made good on a promise made to Republicans last fall to place funds in reducing medical malpractice lawsuits and costs.  25 million dollars worth of grants will be distributed to universities, medical centers, and state health departments.  Officials hope that these grants will improve doctor/patient communication and reduce injury, and as a result minimize medical malpractice lawsuits and lower liability insurance premiums.

In an address to Congress last September, President Obama stated, "I don't believe that malpractice reform is a silver bullet, but I've talked to enough doctors to know that defensive medicine may be contributing to unnecessary costs".
