Closing the 'Pill Mills': New State Law Requires Certification

A new law requires pain management clinics to be certified by the Texas Medical Board (TMB). The Texas Medical Association supported Senate Bill 911, which directs TMB to adopt rules to ensure quality of patient care and to set personnel requirements at pain management clinics. The new law also gives TMB authority to inspect pain management clinics, or entities believed to be pain management clinics, to determine whether they're operating legally.
