FROM OUR HEALTH REFORM SCHOOL CLASSROOM

TMA President Sue Bailey, MD, the self-described “headmistress of TMA’s Health Reform School,” called class to order in Beaumont and Dallas last week. More are scheduled. We’re collecting the most frequently asked questions, and their answers, to publish in an upcoming issue of Texas Medicine. One that comes up, frustratingly, at almost every event is this: Why did TMA support the health system reform law? Answer: We didn’t. No way. Backed by a set of principles adopted by the TMA House of Delegates, we opposed the bill that became law. We continue to work to keep what’s good in the law and fix what’s broken. That’s a lengthy agenda.
