Physicians from McAllen to El Paso join their colleagues from other border states on Capitol Hill today for a three-day lobby trip to engage Congress on border health issues. The well-timed visit gives the Border Health Caucus the opportunity to talk directly about the Medicare funding crisis. Tomorrow’s third annual Border Health Conference will cover adequate funding for Medicare and Medicaid, support for physician training, ensuring quality health care for border patients, and proper preparedness for disasters and infectious epidemics.
