Medical Malpractice Bill Delayed

Senate Bill 203, legislation that would expand medical malpractice awards in Wisconsin for the loss of companionship involving the deaths of adult children or parents, was scheduled to be taken up by the State Senate Tuesday. However, the Senate Democratic Leadership pulled the bill from the calendar on Monday.

Expanding medical malpractice costs on health care professionals increases health care costs and compounds the challenges in improving access and affordability.
