Texas SOL Law Limits Runout Liability

Texas has a law requiring that health care service providers bill a patient no later than the first day of the 11th month after services were provided.

If the bill is not sent within the timeframe in the law, the health care service provider cannot try to collect payment for certain charges, such as anything a patient could have been reimbursed by a health plan for or any charges that a patient would not have owed had the provider billed them in a timely fashion. The details can be found in the law linked below.
