Schiffer Opposes Doctor Subsidies

Laramie, Wy – A legislative committee will take another look at a proposal to provide subsidies to doctors paying high medical practice premiums. The temporary subsidy, supported by the Governor is intended to try and keep doctors from leaving the state until a permanent solution to medical malpractice is found. But not everyone likes the idea. Among them is Senate appropriations chairman John Schiffer. His concern is that doctors are being singled out for help, when other citizens have high insurance costs.
Schiffer also worries that the subsidies will hard to get rid of.
