Recovery of Medical Expenses Under Section 490.715.5, RSMo: Worth a Closer Look


Section 490.715.5, RSMo, part of Missouri's 2005 tort reform efforts, has been described as an attempt to limit, if not eradicate, the collateral source rule in the recovery of expense for medical treatment. Examination of 490.715.5 reveals it 1) follows Missouri law in limiting recovery of medical treatment expenses to those which were either incurred or actually paid; and 2) honors the collateral source rule, but does not extend it.
