Malpractice Insurer Leaves Wyoming

Columbus, OH – It doesn't appear the failure of tort reform is to blame, but Wyoming's largest medical malpratice insurance carrier is leaving. OHIC Insurance Company will no longer write policies for doctors in the state after August. The pullout leaves just three companies providing medical malpractice coverge in Wyoming. The company says the decision was based on internal financial reasons and not because the Legislature voted against a proposed cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases.
