TEXAS HOUSE BILL 1869 AND SENATE BILL 1339

Texas House Bill 1869 and the companion bill, SB 1339 in the Senate, are being rushed through committees. One of our members has personally met with representatives in both the House and the Senate, but these bills appear to be gliding through committees without opposition. These bills severely limit the recovery amounts health insurers can collect from third party settlements through subrogation. NASP continues to urge its members to oppose these bills.
The Senate has set its version of the bill for public hearing in Austin before the State Affairs Committee for Monday, April 15th at 9 a.m.  Any member, carrier, employer or administrator doing business in Texas is strongly encouraged to attend the hearing and testify against the bill.  If you are a Texas resident, please contact your state Senator or Representative to express your opposition to such a restriction on subrogation rights.

NASP will be hosting a free webinar discussion regarding the bill for our members on Friday April 12, 2013 at 2:30 EST.  The purpose of this webinar is to go over the proposed bill at the hearing on Monday, April 15, 2013.  Please click here to register for the Webinar on our Webex site.
