Fairness for Injured Patients Act

Local medical societies are joining together with hundreds of organizations in opposing the so-called “Fairness for Injured Patients Act” (FIPA) because it will devastate the health care delivery system, hurt community health centers and raise health care costs for ALL Californians. FIPA will be on the ballot this November and, if passed, will effectively eliminate the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act of 1975 (MICRA’s) protections. Funded by a wealthy out-of-state trial attorney, this proposition would be a windfall for lawyers at the expense of California’s most vulnerable patients. For more information, see here
