Sen. Coburn: It is too expensive to deliver babies anymore

The Hill: “A family physician who serves in the Senate says he has stopped delivering babies because of liability costs. Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) on Tuesday said, ‘I’m no longer delivering babies, and one of the reasons is that I can’t collect… to pay for the malpractice [premiums].’ He added, ‘The malpractice [insurance] is too expensive. It was about $1,600 a baby, just in terms of malpractice costs for me to deliver children.’”
