Law360, New York (August 1, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT) -- Gov. Perry recently signed four bills into law — SB 746, SB 8, SB 1803 and SB 658 — designed to combat Medicaid fraud, waste and abuse in Texas. The bills are a mixed bag of enhanced enforcement capabilities for the state and a few new protections for health care providers.
Most notably, the Legislature made several changes to the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act (TMFPA), bringing the statute more in line with the federal False Claims Act.
