Introduced in House (02/18/2011)

Provider Shield Act of 2011 - Declares that the development, recognition, or implementation of any guideline or other standard under specified Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) provisions related to health care quality shall not be construed to establish the standard of care or duty of care owed by a health care provider to a patient in any medical malpractice or medical product liability case.

Repeals a PPACA provision requiring the Comptroller General to study whether the development, recognition, or implementation of any such guideline or other standard would result in the establishment of a new cause of action or claim.
