TAPA: LIABILITY REFORMS PROTECTED
“For the fifth consecutive legislative session, our 2003 medical tort reforms remained unscathed.” That’s the message the leaders of the Texas Alliance for Patient Access (TAPA) shared at the organization’s annual meeting, which also commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Texas liability reforms. A report on the current battle in California to protect Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act caps gave it all a sense of urgency. The membership reelected TAPA Board Chair Howard Marcus, MD, of Austin. Among those elected to the board were TMA Advocacy Vice President Darren Whitehurst, and Jim Cox, MD, and Monte Troutman, DO, of Fort Worth. A bylaws change gives TMA, which helped found the organization, a permanent seat on the TAPA board.
