U.S. Senator John Cornyn Receives Soaring Eagle Award

October 1, 2015 Laura Hale Brockway






U.S. Senator John Cornyn has received the Soaring Eagle Award from the Texas Alliance for Patient Access, TMLT, and the Texas Medical Association for playing a vital role in making sure that critically important standard of care protection language remained a part of the SGR “doc fix” bill, House Resolution 2.

The legislation passed the Senate on April 14, 2015, and was signed into law by President Obama on April 21. The standard of care language protects state liability tort laws, including Texas’ landmark reforms of 2003. It also ensures that federal health care standards cannot be used to establish legal action against health care providers.
