Limiting Tort Liability for Medical Malpractice
The past few years have seen a sharp increase in premiums for medical malpractice liability insurance, which health care professionals buy to protect themselves from the costs of being sued ( see Figure 1 ). On average, premiums for all physicians nationwide rose by 15 percent between 2000 and 2002--nearly twice as fast as total health care spending per person.

You do not have to be a publicly registered corporation to issue shares. In fact all corporations must issue at least some shares to the owners of the business upon formation. Generally speaking there are only 3 ways money can come into the corporation, selling shares (equity financing), taking on debt (debt financing), and revenue.
