Physician Group Files Suit Against Health Care Law

A group of physician-owned hospitals are suing to block a ban in the new health care law on Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements to doctor-owned facilities.

Physician Hospitals of America and the Texas Spine & Joint Hospital filed the lawsuit Thursday.

They asked a judge to block the federal government from enacting the ban, calling it exclusionary and arbitrary.

Physicians Hospital of America said the national health care law would "stop the growth of many of the best hospitals in the country."
