Local Medical Practitioners may Soon Have to carry Medical Insurance

The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda recently gave consideration to making medical insurance a requirement for all medical practitioners, so that those patients who may be damaged by the negligence of doctors can have coverage that will limit liability, but will assure patients of a source from which they can be compensated.

According to the Government, consultations and other discussions with doctors and insurance companies will be arranged in the near future.
