TMA President Bill Hinchey, MD, is leading a delegation to Capitol Hill that includes 12 physicians, 10 TMA Alliance members, five medical students, and six TMA staff members. As part of the American Medical Association’s National Advocacy Conference, the TMA contingent will take part in a march to the Capitol with hundreds of physicians from around the country. We will be meeting with every member of the Texas delegation in Congress, imploring them to adopt the Texas Medicare Manifesto, which calls for a rational Medicare physician payment system that automatically keeps up with the cost of running a practice and is backed by a stable funding source. Look for coverage in next week’s EVPGram and an upcoming Texas Medicine.
