The average medical-malpractice premium declined by 46 percent after H.B.4's passage, according to Jon Opelt, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Patient Access.
Opelt's analysis also found that between 2006 and 2011, nearly 80 percent of Texas's 22 trauma-service areas saw a per-capita gain in direct patient-care physicians. The Texas Medical Board has marked the increase in the number of in-state practicing physicians at 31 percent-well ahead of the rate of Texas's population growth.

However, Silver and his fellow researchers' unpublished study says Texas Medical Board data that Opelt cites on new physician applications and licenses do not account for doctors who left the state or retired, creating vacancies for their jobs; physicians who don't treat patients but do research or administrative work; and physician growth compared with other states.
