Bill Caption

Relating to the amount of a hospital or physician lien on certain causes of action or claims.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 2064 would create an alternative method for calculating the amount of a hospital or physician lien on certain causes of action. This bill would allow the current methods of calculation "less the pro rata share of attorney’s fees and expenses the injured individual incurred in pursuing the claim" or the amount "awarded by the trier of fact for the services provided to the injured individual by the hospital less the pro rata share of attorney’s fees and expenses the injured individual incurred in pursuing the claim."

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action is neutral on HB 2064.
