3 lawsuits that could disrupt healthcare

Here are three lawsuits Becker's has reported on since July 6 that have the potential to change the healthcare industry: 

1. A Texas federal judge has sided with the Texas Medical Association for a third time in its series of legal challenges over the No Surprises Act, this time over a 600 percent hike in administrative fees when seeking dispute resolutions.  

2. Three California nurses with doctorates of nursing practice sued the California attorney general, leaders of the Medical Board of California and the California Board of Registered Nursing, stating that they should have the right to call themselves "doctor."

3. David Lankford, MD, an Indiana-based pediatric intensivist, filed a lawsuit against Lutheran Medical Group to prevent his former employer from enforcing a noncompete agreement.
