Abstract

This comment examines health maintenance organizations (HMOs) and other managed care entities and the defenses used to escape liability in medical malpractice suits. Texas became the first State to pass legislation that would put an end to one such defense and place liability on HMOs. The author suggests that such State legislation is not enough to hold HMOs liable and recommends that Congress rethink the federal statutes that still protect HMOs from liability.
