TOA Supports TMA’s Lawsuit Challenging the Median In-Network Rate

December 26, 2021

The Texas Orthopaedic Association submitted a supporting declaration in support of the Texas Medical Association’s lawsuit alleging that the rule created by the federal agencies responsible for implementing the No Surprises Act incorrectly directs arbitrators to determine appropriate out-of-network payments by relying primarily on the median in-network rate.

The American Medical Association and American Hospital Association teamed up to file a similar lawsuit on December 9, 2021. The American Society of Anesthesiologists, American College of Emergency Physicians and American College of Radiology joined together to file a similar lawsuit on December 22, 2021.
