145.023 Third Party Administrators


Third Party Administrators: The Texas Medical Association continues to pursue all appropriate avenues to address ERISA preemption problems, including regulation of third party administrators by the Texas Department of Insurance when TPAs function as agents of insurance companies in the handling of medical and health insurance claims. Those advocacy initiatives should include exploration about how/if new, more favorable court decisions may help address this issue, and promote as the highest priority active advocacy initiatives with other stakeholders to seek appropriate federal statutory changes to ERISA (BOT Rep. 12-A-05; reaffirmed BOT Rep. 15-A-15).
