A Commonwealth Court panel in Pennsylvania ordered the state to transfer $800 million dollars that was diverted to another program back to the medical malpractice account where it was initially kept. The account, known as MCare, was established to help state physicians pay their malpractice premiums. Following the ruling, there have been dissenting opinions, especially by those who fear that the state budget may be adversely affected or that doctors will receive too much assistance from the program.
