IS DUAL-ELIGIBLE DEBACLE HURTING YOUR PRACTICE?
We’ve heard and seen lots of examples (see our videos from La Joya and Houston) of how the state’s new dual-eligible payment policy is wreaking financial havoc in physicians’ practices across the state. Many doctors have told us the cash-flow problems have forced them to dip into their retirement accounts or take out commercial loans to keep their practices afloat. The only way we can reverse this disaster is to convince state leaders what it means to patients and practices across Texas. Look for a TMA action alert this week to share your story with your state senator and representative. We will keep the pressure up, but we need grassroots help to make it work.
