Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book should be of interest to anyone seeking to understand the key features of the insurance industry in the United States....It should be useful to those interested in insurance and those concerned with an important aspect of medical economics."—Journal of Economic Literature

"Culminates and extends the authors' extensive past published work on malpractice insurance. The book's clear organization allows the reader to easily find the connections between evidence and conclusions. It patiently explains institutional details, as well as the industry's legal and regulatory environment. A strength of the book is its presentation of extensive data developed by the authors and their institutions." —Inquiry
