CHIP EXTENDED WITHOUT PHYSICIAN-OWNERSHIP LIMITS
A special thanks to all the TMA members who called and wrote Congress; our message got through. President Barack Obama signed the bill reauthorizing and expanding the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which we wanted. The bill was stripped, however, of unnecessary restrictions on physician-owned hospitals. Look for that issue to come back, again and again.
