    Full Text of this Amendment

    SA 3673. Mr. GREGG submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill H.R. 2419, to provide for the continuation of agricultural programs through fiscal year 2012, and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

    At the appropriate place, insert the following:
    TITLE __--


    HEALTHY MOTHERS AND HEALTHY BABIES RURAL ACCESS TO CARE
    SEC. X01. SHORT TITLE.
    This title may be cited as the ``Healthy Mothers and Healthy Babies Rural Access to Care Act''.
    SEC. X02. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.
    (a) Findings.--
    (1) EFFECT ON WOMEN'
    S ACCESS TO HEALTH SERVICES.--Congress finds that--

    (A) the current civil justice system is eroding women's access to obstetrical and gynecological services;
    (B) the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has identified nearly half of the States as having a medical liability insurance crisis that is threatening access to high-quality obstetrical and gynecological services;
    (C) because of the high cost of medical liability insurance and the risk of being sued, one in seven obstetricians and gynecologists have stopped practicing obstetrics and one in five has decreased their number of high-risk obstetrics patients; and
    (D) because of the lack of availability of obstetrical services, women--
    (i) must travel longer distances and cross State lines to find a doctor;
    (ii) have longer waiting periods (in some cases months) for appointments;
    (iii) have shorter visits with their physicians once they get appointments;
    (iv) have less access to maternal-fetal medicine specialists, physicians with the most experience and training in the care of women with high-risk pregnancies; and
    (v) have fewer hospitals with maternity wards where they can deliver their child, potentially endangering the lives and health of the woman and her unborn child.
    (2) EFFECT ON INTERSTATE COMMERCE.--Congress finds that the health care and insurance industries are industries affecting interstate commerce and the health care liability litigation systems existing throughout the United States are activities that affect interstate commerce by contributing to the high costs of health care and premiums for health care liability insurance purchased by health care system providers.
    (3) EFFECT ON FEDERAL SPENDING.--Congress finds that the health care liability litigation systems existing throughout the United States have a significant effect on the amount, distribution, and use of Federal funds because of--
    (A) the large number of individuals who receive health care benefits under programs operated or financed by the Federal Government;
    (B) the large number of individuals who benefit because of the exclusion from Federal taxes of the amounts spent to provide them with health insurance benefits; and
    (C) the large number of health care providers who provide items or services for which the Federal Government makes payments.
    (b) Purpose.--It is the purpose of this title to implement reasonable, comprehensive, and effective health care liability reforms designed to--
    (1) improve the availability of health care services in cases in which health care liability actions have been shown to be a factor in the decreased availability of services;
    (2) reduce the incidence of ``defensive medicine'' and lower the cost of health care liability insurance, all of which contribute to the escalation of health care costs;
    (3) ensure that persons with meritorious health care injury claims receive fair and adequate compensation, including reasonable noneconomic damages;
    (4) improve the fairness and cost-effectiveness of our current health care liability system to resolve disputes over, and provide compensation for, health care liability by reducing uncertainty in the amount of compensation provided to injured individuals; and
    (5) provide an increased sharing of information in the health care system which will reduce unintended injury and improve patient care.
    SEC. X03. DEFINITIONS.
    In this title:
    (1) ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION SYSTEM; ADR.--The term ``alternative dispute resolution system'' or ``ADR'' means a system that provides for the resolution of health care lawsuits in a manner other than through a civil action brought in a State or Federal court.
    (2) CLAIMANT.--The term ``claimant'' means any person who brings a health care lawsuit, including a person who asserts or claims a right to legal or equitable contribution, indemnity or subrogation, arising out of a health care liability claim or action, and any person on whose behalf such a claim is asserted or such an action is brought, whether deceased, incompetent, or a minor.
    (3) COLLATERAL SOURCE BENEFITS.--The term ``collateral source benefits'' means any amount paid or reasonably likely to be paid in the future to or on behalf of the claimant, or any service, product or other benefit provided or reasonably likely to be provided in the future to or on behalf of the claimant, as a result of the injury or wrongful death, pursuant to--
    (A) any State or Federal health, sickness, income-disability, accident, or workers' compensation law;
    (B) any health, sickness, income-disability, or accident insurance that provides health benefits or income-disability coverage;

    SEC. X04. ENCOURAGING SPEEDY RESOLUTION OF CLAIMS.
    (a) In General.--Except as otherwise provided for in this section, the time for the commencement of a health care lawsuit shall be 3 years after the date of manifestation of injury or 1 year after the claimant discovers, or through the use of reasonable diligence should have discovered, the injury, whichever occurs first.
    (b) General Exception.--The time for the commencement of a health care lawsuit shall not exceed 3 years after the date of manifestation of injury unless the tolling of time was delayed as a result of--
    (1) fraud;
    (2) intentional concealment; or
    (3) the presence of a foreign body, which has no therapeutic or diagnostic purpose or effect, in the person of the injured person.
    (c) Minors.--An action by a minor shall be commenced within 3 years from the date of the alleged manifestation of injury except that if such minor is under the full age of 6 years, such action shall be commenced within 3 years of the manifestation of injury, or prior to the eighth birthday of the minor, whichever provides a longer period. Such time limitation shall be tolled for minors for any period during which a parent or guardian and a health care provider or health care institution
    have committed fraud or collusion in the failure to bring an action on behalf of the injured minor.
    (d) Rule 11 Sanctions.--Whenever a Federal or State court determines (whether by motion of the parties or whether on the motion of the court) that there has been a violation of Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (or a similar violation of applicable State court rules) in a health care liability action to which this title applies, the court shall impose upon the attorneys, law firms, or pro se litigants that have violated Rule 11 or are responsible for the violation, an
    appropriate sanction, which shall include an order to pay the other party or parties for the reasonable expenses incurred as a direct result of the filing of the pleading, motion, or other paper that is the subject of the violation, including a reasonable attorneys' fee. Such sanction shall be sufficient to deter repetition of such conduct or comparable conduct by others similarly situated, and to compensate the party or parties injured by such conduct.
    SEC. X05. COMPENSATING PATIENT INJURY.
    (a) Unlimited Amount of Damages for Actual Economic Losses in Health Care Lawsuits.--In any health care lawsuit, nothing in this title shall limit the recovery by a claimant of the full amount of the available economic damages, notwithstanding the limitation contained in subsection (b).
    (b) Additional Noneconomic Damages.--
    (1) HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS.--In any health care lawsuit where final judgment is rendered against a health care provider, the amount of noneconomic damages recovered from the provider, if otherwise available under applicable Federal or State law, may be as much as $250,000, regardless of the number of parties other than a health care institution against whom the action is brought or the number of separate claims or actions brought with respect to the same occurrence.
    (2) HEALTH CARE INSTITUTIONS.--
    (A) SINGLE INSTITUTION.--In any health care lawsuit where final judgment is rendered against a single health care institution, the amount of noneconomic damages recovered from the institution, if otherwise available under applicable Federal or State law, may be as much as $250,000, regardless of the number of parties against whom the action is brought or the number of separate claims or actions brought with respect to the same occurrence.
    (B) MULTIPLE INSTITUTIONS.--In any health care lawsuit where final judgment is rendered against more than one health care institution, the amount of noneconomic damages recovered from each institution, if otherwise available under applicable Federal or State law, may be as much as $250,000, regardless of the number of parties against whom the action is brought or the number of separate claims or actions brought with respect to the same occurrence, except that the total amount recovered
    from all such institutions in such lawsuit shall not exceed $500,000.
    (c) No Discount of Award for Noneconomic Damages.--In any health care lawsuit--
    (1) an award for future noneconomic damages shall not be discounted to present value;
    (2) the jury shall not be informed about the maximum award for noneconomic damages under subsection (b);
    (3) an award for noneconomic damages in excess of the limitations provided for in subsection (b) shall be reduced either before the entry of judgment, or by amendment of the judgment after entry of judgment, and such reduction shall be made before accounting for any other reduction in damages required by law; and
    (4) if separate awards are rendered for past and future noneconomic damages and the combined awards exceed the limitations provided for in subsection (b), the future noneconomic damages shall be reduced first.
    (d) Fair Share Rule.--In any health care lawsuit, each party shall be liable for that party's several share of any damages only and not for the share of any other person. Each party shall be liable only for the amount of damages allocated to such party in direct proportion to such party's percentage of responsibility. A separate judgment shall be rendered against each such party for the amount allocated to such party. For purposes of this section, the trier of fact shall determine the
    proportion of responsibility of each party for the claimant's harm.
    SEC. X06. MAXIMIZING PATIENT RECOVERY.
    (a) Court Supervision of Share of Damages Actually Paid to Claimants.--
    (1) IN GENERAL.--In any health care lawsuit, the court shall supervise the arrangements for payment of damages to protect against conflicts of interest that may have the effect of reducing the amount of damages awarded that are actually paid to claimants.
    (2) CONTINGENCY FEES.--
    (A) IN GENERAL.--In any health care lawsuit in which the attorney for a party claims a financial stake in the outcome by virtue of a contingent fee, the court shall have the power to restrict the payment of a claimant's damage recovery to such attorney, and to redirect such damages to the claimant based upon the interests of justice and principles of equity.
    (B) LIMITATION.--The total of all contingent fees for representing all claimants in a health care lawsuit shall not exceed the following limits:
    (i) 40 percent of the first $50,000 recovered by the claimant(s).
    (ii) 33 1/3 percent of the next $50,000 recovered by the claimant(s).
    (iii) 25 percent of the next $500,000 recovered by the claimant(s).
    (iv) 15 percent of any amount by which the recovery by the claimant(s) is in excess of $600,000.
    (b) Applicability.--
    (1) IN GENERAL.--The limitations in subsection (a) shall apply whether the recovery is by judgment, settlement, mediation, arbitration, or any other form of alternative dispute resolution.
    (2) MINORS.--In a health care lawsuit involving a minor or incompetent person, a court retains the authority to authorize or approve a fee that is less than the maximum permitted under this section.
    (c) Expert Witnesses.--
    (1) REQUIREMENT.--No individual shall be qualified to testify as an expert witness concerning issues of negligence in any health care lawsuit against a defendant unless such individual--
    (A) except as required under paragraph (2), is a health care professional who--
    (i) is appropriately credentialed or licensed in 1 or more States to deliver health care services; and
    (ii) typically treats the diagnosis or condition or provides the type of treatment under review; and
    (B) can demonstrate by competent evidence that, as a result of training, education, knowledge, and experience in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of the disease or injury which is the subject matter of the lawsuit against the defendant, the individual was substantially familiar with applicable standards of care and practice as they relate to the act or omission which is the subject of the lawsuit on the date of the incident.
    (2) PHYSICIAN REVIEW.--In a health care lawsuit, if the claim of the plaintiff involved treatment that is recommended or provided by a physician (allopathic or osteopathic), an individual shall not be qualified to be an expert witness under this subsection with respect to issues of negligence concerning such treatment unless such individual is a physician.
    (3) SPECIALTIES AND SUBSPECIALTIES.--With respect to a lawsuit described in paragraph (1), a court shall not permit an expert in one medical specialty or subspecialty to testify against a defendant in another medical specialty or subspecialty unless, in addition to a showing of substantial familiarity in accordance with paragraph (1)(B), there is a showing that the standards of care and practice in the two specialty or subspecialty fields are similar.
    (4) LIMITATION.--The limitations in this subsection shall not apply to expert witnesses testifying as to the degree or permanency of medical or physical impairment.
    SEC. X07. ADDITIONAL HEALTH BENEFITS.
    (a) In General.--The amount of any damages received by a claimant in any health care lawsuit shall be reduced by the court by the amount of any collateral source benefits to which the claimant is entitled, less any insurance premiums or other payments made by the claimant (or by the spouse, parent, child, or legal guardian of the claimant) to obtain or secure such benefits.
    (b) Preservation of Current Law.--Where a payor of collateral source benefits has a right of recovery by reimbursement or subrogation and such right is permitted under Federal or State law, subsection (a) shall not apply.
    (c) Application of Provision.--This section shall apply to any health care lawsuit that is settled or resolved by a fact finder.
    SEC. X08. PUNITIVE DAMAGES.
    (a) Punitive Damages Permitted.--
    (1) IN GENERAL.--Punitive damages may, if otherwise available under applicable State or Federal law, be awarded against any person in a health care lawsuit only if it is proven by clear and convincing evidence that such person acted with malicious intent to injure the claimant, or that such person deliberately failed to avoid unnecessary injury that such person knew the claimant was substantially certain to suffer.
    (2) FILING OF LAWSUIT.--No demand for punitive damages shall be included in a health care lawsuit as initially filed. A court may allow a claimant to file an amended pleading for punitive damages only upon a motion by the claimant and after a finding by the court, upon review of supporting and opposing affidavits or after a hearing, after weighing the evidence, that the claimant has established by a substantial probability that the claimant will prevail on the claim for punitive damages.
    (3) SEPARATE PROCEEDING.--At the request of any party in a health care lawsuit, the trier of fact shall consider in a separate proceeding--
    (A) whether punitive damages are to be awarded and the amount of such award; and
    (B) the amount of punitive damages following a determination of punitive liability.
    If a separate proceeding is requested, evidence relevant only to the claim for punitive damages, as determined by applicable State law, shall be inadmissible in any proceeding to determine whether compensatory damages are to be awarded.
    (4) LIMITATION WHERE NO COMPENSATORY DAMAGES ARE AWARDED.--In any health care lawsuit where no judgment for compensatory damages is rendered against a person, no punitive damages may be awarded with respect to the claim in such lawsuit against such person.
    (b) Determining Amount of Punitive Damages.--
    (1) FACTORS CONSIDERED.--In determining the amount of punitive damages under this section, the trier of fact shall consider only the following:
    (A) the severity of the harm caused by the conduct of such party;
    (B) the duration of the conduct or any concealment of it by such party;
    (C) the profitability of the conduct to such party;
    (D) the number of products sold or medical procedures rendered for compensation, as the case may be, by such party, of the kind causing the harm complained of by the claimant;
    (E) any criminal penalties imposed on such party, as a result of the conduct complained of by the claimant; and
    (F) the amount of any civil fines assessed against such party as a result of the conduct complained of by the claimant.
    (2) MAXIMUM AWARD.--The amount of punitive damages awarded in a health care lawsuit may not exceed an amount equal to two times the amount of economic damages awarded in the lawsuit or $250,000, whichever is greater. The jury shall not be informed of the limitation under the preceding sentence.
    (c) Liability of Health Care Providers.--
    (1) IN GENERAL.--A health care provider who prescribes, or who dispenses pursuant to a prescription, a drug, biological product, or medical device approved by the Food and Drug Administration, for an approved indication of the drug, biological product, or medical device, shall not be named as a party to a product liability lawsuit invoking such drug, biological product, or medical device and shall not be liable to a claimant in a class action lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor,
    or product seller of such drug, biological product, or medical device.
    (2) MEDICAL PRODUCT.--The term ``medical product'' means a drug or device intended for humans. The terms ``drug'' and ``device'' have the meanings given such terms in sections 201(g)(1) and 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 321), respectively, including any component or raw material used therein, but excluding health care services.
    SEC. X09. AUTHORIZATION OF PAYMENT OF FUTURE DAMAGES TO CLAIMANTS IN HEALTH CARE LAWSUITS.
    (a) In General.--In any health care lawsuit, if an award of future damages, without reduction to present value, equaling or exceeding $50,000 is made against a party with sufficient insurance or other assets to fund a periodic payment of such a judgment, the court shall, at the request of any party, enter a judgment ordering that the future damages be paid by periodic payments. In any health care lawsuit, the court may be guided by the Uniform Periodic Payment of Judgments Act promulgated
    by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws.
    (b) Applicability.--This section applies to all actions which have not been first set for trial or retrial before the effective date of this title.
    SEC. X10. EFFECT ON OTHER LAWS.
    (a) General Vaccine Injury.--
    (1) IN GENERAL.--To the extent that title XXI of the Public Health Service Act establishes a Federal rule of law applicable to a civil action brought for a vaccine-related injury or death--

    (B) any rule of law prescribed by this title in conflict with a rule of law of such title XXI shall not apply to such action.
    (2) EXCEPTION.--If there is an aspect of a civil action brought for a vaccine-related injury or death to which a Federal rule of law under title XXI of the Public Health Service Act does not apply, then this title or otherwise applicable law (as determined under this title) will apply to such aspect of such action.
    (b) Smallpox Vaccine Injury.--

    (c) Other Federal Law.--Except as provided in this section, nothing in this title shall be deemed to affect any defense available, or any limitation on liability that applies to, a defendant in a health care lawsuit or action under any other provision of Federal law.
    SEC. X11. STATE FLEXIBILITY AND PROTECTION OF STATES' RIGHTS.
    (a) Health Care Lawsuits.--The provisions governing health care lawsuits set forth in this title shall preempt, subject to subsections (b) and (c), State law to the extent that State law prevents the application of any provisions of law established by or under this title. The provisions governing health care lawsuits set forth in this title supersede chapter 171 of title 28, United States Code, to the extent that such chapter--
    (1) provides for a greater amount of damages or contingent fees, a longer period in which a health care lawsuit may be commenced, or a reduced applicability or scope of periodic payment of future damages, than provided in this title; or
    (2) prohibits the introduction of evidence regarding collateral source benefits.
    (b) Preemption of Certain State Laws.--No provision of this title shall be construed to preempt any State law (whether effective before, on, or after the date of the enactment of this title) that specifies a particular monetary amount of compensatory or punitive damages (or the total amount of damages) that may be awarded in a health care lawsuit, regardless of whether such monetary amount is greater or lesser than is provided for under this title, notwithstanding section X05(a).

    (c) Protection of State'
    s Rights and Other Laws.--

    (1) IN GENERAL.--Any issue that is not governed by a provision of law established by or under this title (including the State standards of negligence) shall be governed by otherwise applicable Federal or State law.
    (2) RULE OF CONSTRUCTION.--Nothing in this title shall be construed to--
    (A) preempt or supersede any Federal or State law that imposes greater procedural or substantive protections for a health care provider or health care institution from liability, loss, or damages than those provided by this title;
    (B) preempt or supercede any State law that permits and provides for the enforcement of any arbitration agreement related to a health care liability claim whether enacted prior to or after the date of enactment of this title;
    (C) create a cause of action that is not otherwise available under Federal or State law; or
    (D) affect the scope of preemption of any other Federal law.
    SEC. X12. APPLICABILITY; EFFECTIVE DATE.
