Is Chiropractic Safe?
According to NCMIC, the average malpractice insurance rate for doctors of chiropractic across the country is $1,500 per year. For general physicians (MDs), rates range from $10,000 to $20,000 per year–depending on the area of the country. Source
Family and general practitioners reported median premiums of $12,100 per year
, down slightly from $12,600 in 2009. Internists’ median was $13,100 (down from $14,500 in 2009) and pediatricians’ rates were $11,800 (up slightly from $11,500 in 2009). Ob/gyns, always at the high end of the primary care spectrum, paid a median of $46,400, down from $51,200 in 2009. Source
If you take $12,100 and divide it by $1500, you get 8.0667…
One could say that chiropractic care is 8 times safer than family medical care.
