PATIENTS' RIGHT TO KNOW CAMPAIGN UNVEILED TO PUSH HEALTH INSURANCE REFORMS
TMA President Josie Williams, MD, and a bipartisan group of lawmakers carrying our health insurance reform bills held a capitol news conference to launch our Patients’ Right to Know campaign. The legislative package includes the Health Insurance Code of Conduct Act of 2009 (PDF) and the Health Insurance Product Labeling Bill. TMA created a Web site and a Facebook cause where patients can write their legislators in support of health insurance reform bills. Educational materials will be mailed to physician offices to inform and engage patients. Watch the news conference.
