The appellant, owner of a nursing and long-term care facility, appeals the trial court's denial of its motion to compel arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act in the underlying health care liability lawsuit. The arbitration provision of the Texas Medical Liability Act is a law enacted for the purpose of regulating the business of insurance within the meaning of the federal McCarran-Ferguson Act and is thus not preempted by the FAA. The trial court's order is affirmed. Fredericksburg Care Co. L.P. v. Perez, San Antonio Court of Appeals, No. 04-13-00111-CV, 06-26-2013.
