DUAL-ELIGIBLE CONFAB SLATED FOR HARLINGEN
The Cameron-Willacy County Medical Society called a general membership meeting this week to discuss the state’s Medicare-Medicaid dual-eligibility policy and what it’s doing to patient care and physicians’ practices in the Rio Grande Valley. As they did for the rally and town hall meeting last month in McAllen, Dr. Malone and TMA staff will travel south for the event. Despite assurances from Health and Human Services Commissioner Tom Suehs that he wants to help, we need to keep up the pressure on state lawmakers to reverse the cut. Use TMA’s Grassroots Action Center to email your story to your state senator and representative. Tell your lawmakers to ask the Legislative Budget Board to rescind the dual-eligible cut.
