PHYSICIANS MEDICAID CONGRESS ORGANIZING
Invitations are going out this week to the group of Texas physicians who will devise TMA’s plan to repair or replace Texas’ broken Medicaid system. TMA’s Physicians Medicaid Congress will be charged with mapping the path to a system for providing health care to low-income Texans with realistic payment, less stifling state bureaucracy, and no fraud-and-abuse witch hunts. Dr. Speer will chair the Congress, which will convene its first session at the TMA 2012 Fall Conference next month. We’ll follow that up with regional hearings around the state. The Congress will reconvene in Austin at the TMA 2012 Advocacy Summit in December to incorporate the feedback received and finalize our proposal for the 2013 Texas Legislature and U.S. Congress.
