Resources for Physicians - Medical Advisory Board

A physician who is licensed to practice medicine in Texas may voluntarily inform the department or the Medical Advisory Board, orally or in writing, of the full name, date of birth, and address of a patient over the age of 15 years whom he or she has diagnosed as having a disorder or disability specified in the rules of the department. The release of such information by the physician to the board is an exception to the patient-physician privilege requirements of Section 5.08 of the Medical Practices Act.

Physicians voluntarily reporting to the board under Health and Safety Code, Title 2 Subchapter H, Section 12.096 may NOT be held liable for their professional opinions, recommendations and reports.
