COMMISSIONER JANEK RECEIVES OUR STATE HEALTH PRIORITIES
Chief TMA Lobbyist Darren Whitehurst and I had our first official meeting with Kyle Janek, MD, Gov. Rick Perry’s newly appointed head of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. We are, of course, quite familiar with Dr. Janek from his days as a TMA member, state representative and state senator, and health care lobbyist. We spoke with Commissioner Janek about TMA’s state priorities. Among the most pressing right now: finding a way to reverse the steep state cuts in payment for services to dual-eligible patients covered by both Medicaid and Medicare.
