TMA SURVEY FINDS LIABILITY REFORMS BRING MORE CARE, MORE DOCTORS TO TEXANS

Texans now have more physicians offering more care, thanks to the state’s landmark 2003 health care liability reforms, according to the results of a new TMA survey (PDF). Released to mark the fifth anniversary of the passage of Proposition 12, the survey found Texas physicians are providing more services and caring for more patients with complex or high-risk problems. The survey also documented that the improved liability climate is an extremely important factor behind the rush of new physicians to Texas. “It proves once again that the reforms have worked,” said TMA President Josie Williams, MD.
