Texas Medicine Resources LLP v. Molina Healthcare of Texas, Inc.
The Supreme Court of Texas held that when the legislature amended the insurance code to provide a mandatory arbitration process for payment disputes between health insurers and emergency room physicians for claims accruing after January 1, 2020, it did not implicitly authorize a private right of action under the insurance code for claims accruing prior to that date and further any claims by the physicians for payment in quantum meruit or unfair settlement practices fail as a matter of law.
