House bill HB1638 never made it out of the Insurance Committee in the Texas House. It is dead, as it is too late for it to be considered before this legislative session ends. This bill was designed to help people who go to an emergency room and get a surprise "balance billing" -- some are thousands of dollars -- from doctors who are not in the patient's network. This problem is common, as many emergency room facilities use contract doctors, not direct employees.
