Anyone live (or ever lived) in Waco?

If so, could you PM me - I have some questions.

Buzz at the health law conference in Houston for the last two days was that ten attorneys from V&E's Houston office are picking up and moving to Baker Hostetler.

My intel is that the attorneys are all of-counsel and associates, and some of them will be partners over at Baker Hostetler.

Baker Hostetler hasn't really had a health care practice to speak of in Houston, and V&E's website is sporting 24 partners in the health care practice.

Given the "tort reform" in HB4, isn't health law dead or dying?

Tort reform eliminated peer review, the TSBME, anti-trust laws, Stark I, Stark II, EMTALA, the anti-kickback statute, HIPAA, Medicare, Medicaid, Champus, CHiPS, professional licensure, facility licensure, reimbursement, death and dying issues, not-for-profit status, hospital operations and the corporate practice of medicine doctrine?

I'll give you CHiPs, but that was a different action by the state legislature.

I believe that tort reform eliminated disease, death and dying. Hence no health law required. And more time to focus on golf for doctors. Yay!

Yeah, yeah , yeah. Some of the rest of us have complicated practices too (not me, but some other people - like Hank maybe). No need to show off.

I thought HB4 severely limited recovery in medmal cases, and eliminated the old MiLLA statute.

So, do you do compliance work?

I do a lot of things related to health care. Medical malpractice is not and has never been part of the health law bar, though.
