Abstract:     
The federal Patients' Bill of Rights is today a program in search of a rationale, a prominent part of the national agenda because of historical circumstances rather than any currently compelling justification. Moreover, a federal Patients' Bill of Rights would impose two kinds of costs on an already overburdened medical system. Such legislation would increase administrative and legal complexity while reducing the states' flexibility to experiment and innovate. No apparent benefits would justify these costs. Consequently, it is time to scrap the notion of a federal Patients' Bill of Rights.
