Physicians for Free Market Healthcare understands the negative impacts of government over-regulation on physicians and our ability to care for patients.
We’re concerned about government interference that gets in the way of the patient-physician relationship.
We oppose Texas Senate Bill 207/House Bill 1617. If passed, they would limit access to medical care for injured patients by subjecting physicians to abusive legal discovery and allowing anyone, regardless of expertise, to challenge their medical judgment and charges, requiring them to testify in their defense.
These bills threaten a patient’s ability to get essential medical care and set a dangerous precedent for further government meddling in our work.
