Arkansas Physician Premiums consistently lower than states with damage caps

Please call your state senator TODAY to voice your opposition to SJR8, the proposed constitutional amendment that will put a price tag on your life and will shield negligent and abusive nursing homes from accountability. You and your loved ones will be in danger. Proponents of SJR8 say it will lower our physician premiums but tort reform hasn’t accomplished that in other states. Here are some facts to keep in mind about physician premiums in Arkansas. Arkansas’ premium rates are low.

  • Malpractice premiums averaged across specialties are nearly 52% higher in states with caps than in Arkansas.
  • Malpractice premiums for internal medicine are 51% higher in states with caps than in Arkansas
  • Malpractice premiums for general surgeons are nearly 79% higher in states with caps than in Arkansas
