LARGE GROUP LEADERS SHARE LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES

About 30 physicians and staff from Dallas-area large group practices joined TMA and Dallas County Medical Society staff for TMA’s first Large Group Forum. Led by TMA President Josie Williams, MD, and Council on Legislation member Les Secrest, MD, the meeting was the first of three scheduled across the state to discuss with the groups issues facing medicine next year in both the Texas Legislature and the U.S. Congress. Topping their list are payment issues (Medicare and commercial), protecting our liability caps, and scope of practice concerns. The remaining forums are in San Antonio this week and Houston next week.
