Physician organizations to sue HHS
Modern Healthcare

The Texas Spine & Joint Hospital and Physician Hospitals of America are expected to file a lawsuit today against HHS that alleges the health reform law unconstitutionally prohibits expansion and development of physician-owned hospitals, said Molly Sandvig, the PHA’s executive director. The lawsuit, to be filed in U.S. district court in Tyler, Texas, also seeks a preliminary injunction against Section 6001 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, she said.
