Statutory Modification of the Collateral Source Rule
Andrew Feeley, Kayla Horan, and David Schap. 2017. Statutory Modification of the Collateral Source Rule. Journal of Legal Economics 23(2): pp. 81–91.
Statutory law governing application of the collateral source rule is surveyed for the fifty states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. The statutes are described using a classification scheme involving eight major substantive categories that have elements varying in number up to as many as seven distinct items. The classifications are presented in a comprehensive table that notes the number of jurisdictions in which each elemental modification appears. A second table presents the amassed information in a jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction fashion.
