Health Leaders Media

A bill which would impose a limit on the medical liability costs paid by healthcare providers, passed through the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee late Wednesday night.

In a 30-20 vote in favor of H.R. 5, mostly along party lines, the committee placed a $250,000 cap on non-economic damages. Democrats presented more than 10 amendments to the bill but were denied.
