    cost of the health care system, then yeah, malpractice insurance is small potatoes. But as a proportion just of doctors costs, its quite large.

    You are spot on with this:

    The real costs are in coverage litigation.  Not only do patients often have to litigate bad faith claims, but insurers spend enormous amounts of money fighting with each other over who has primary responsibility for payment of claims.  

    The MSM never discusses this.
