PHYSICIANS MEDICAID CONGRESS RECOMMENDS SWEEPING CHANGES
Increasing physicians’ payments, eliminating the dual-eligible payment cut, sharply reducing red tape and administrative hassles, and curtailing fraud-and-abuse witch hunts are what Texas Medicaid needs to recruit physicians back to the program. That’s the conclusion of our Physicians Medicaid Congress, which finalized its recommendations over the weekend. The TMA Board of Trustees and Council on Legislation will consider and prioritize the list, which includes advocacy for reforms at the Texas Legislature, U.S. Congress, and Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). Check out TMA’s newest video on why Texas physicians feel Medicaid is broken.
