If certain changes currently under consideration by the Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner go into effect, Pennsylvania Physicians could end up paying a significantly larger malpractice insurance bill next year.  Specifically, the Insurance Department is considering changing the required level of coverage Pennsylvania physicians must maintain (before MCARE coverage) from $500,000 to $750,000.  According to a recent article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, some physicians believe that the malpractice crisis in Pennsylvania is far from over and that such a change will only serve to reinvigorate the crisis.
