Mr. Nixon is wrong. I just looked at the 2012 AMA "Physician Characteristics and Distribution in the U.S." to verify the numbers mentioned by Mr. Nixon. Rather than looking at the number of doctors, I thought a more meaningful comparison would be the number of doctors per 100,000 population, since that number accounts for changes in population as a whole.
In 2000, Texas had 224 doctors per 100,000 population. The national average was 284 doctors per 100,000 people. In 2010, Texas had 242 doctors per 100,000 population, an increase of 8 percent over the ten years. The national number of doctors increased to 314 per 100,000 people, an increase of 10.6 percent. Thus, rather than there being an increased influx of doctors, Texas actually lagged behind the rest of the country in attracting doctors.
I next compared Texas to Minnesota, a state that has never had any limit on compensation in medical malpractice cases. In 2000, Minnesota had 289 doctors per 100,000 people. In 2010, it had 343 doctors per 100,000 people, an increase of 18.7 percent! When comparing Texas to the country as a whole and to Minnesota, a state without limits on damages, the legislation that deprived many Texans of their right to fair compensation has not seen the benefits claimed by Mr. Nixon.
