Gov. Scott moves the needle on his promise to protect some doctors

During the 2010 campaign for governor, Rick Scott made two promises in an effort to help some doctors avoid expensive lawsuits.

"Rick Scott supports extending sovereign immunity to physicians acting on behalf of the Department of Health, as already provided to those acting as agents of the Department of Corrections, and providing some measure of indemnification to those physicians who primarily treat Medicare and Medicaid patients."
