MEDICAID WOES PROMPT FIRST JOINT MEDICAL SOCIETY MEETING IN RIO GRANDE VALLEY
The still-unresolved payment crisis for dual-eligible patients was the impetus for the first-ever joint meeting of the Hidalgo-Starr and Cameron-Willacy county medical societies. TMA Board Vice Chair Carlos Cardenas, MD, and a contingent of TMA legislative, legal, and policy staffers took part. About 40 physicians attended, expressing their frustration over the problem. Resolution of the dual-eligible payment disaster will be a key goal of our new Medicaid agenda.
