STANDARD OF CARE BILL REINTRODUCED
U.S. Reps. Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo) and Phil Gingrey, MD (R-Georgia), reintroduced the Standard of Care Protection Act (HR 4750) to protect physicians from new causes of action. The bill, which was part of the Sustainable Growth Rate repeal bill that almost passed Congress earlier this year, ensures that no provisions of federal health care law may be inappropriately used to create new threats for medical liability cases in the country. Texas physicians send vigorous thanks to Representative Cuellar for his longstanding commitment to this issue.
