The TMA Legal Fund is a physician’s best investment to protect doctors’ legal rights as they practice medicine.
Why a Legal Fund?
Have you experienced:
Chronic underpayment by health plans?
Non-physicians trying to practice outside their profession?
Threatening demand letters from recovery auditors?
Doctors experiencing these issues know first-hand how important it is to have Tennessee’s largest and most influential physicians’ professional organization on their side in court.
Some of our recent legal advocacy successes:
Our national class action litigation settlements against health insurance plans, in conjunction with other medical associations, have yielded millions of dollars in settlement proceeds for physicians and landmark business practice changes by the industry.
The TMA was able to halt audit activity against Tennessee physicians by Health Research Insights, Inc. (HRI), filing suit against unlawful recoupments by the recovery auditor.
Our amicus brief helped win a court ruling that preserves the “Locality Rule” in Tennessee, keeping a local standard of care in medical malpractice actions.
