THOUSANDS JOIN PHYSICIANS MEDICAID CONGRESS CALLS
Dr. Speer and John Holcomb, MD, chair of TMA’s Committee on Medicaid, CHIP, and the Uninsured, hosted a pair of tele-town hall meetings to seek physicians’ ideas on how to improve health care for low-income Texans. The telephone listening sessions — along with an in-person meeting in McAllen hosted by TMA Board Vice Chair Carlos Cardenas, MD — are a key component of TMA’s Physicians Medicaid Congress. Thousands of Texas physicians listened in and shared their complaints with the current system and suggestions for fixing it. The Physicians Medicaid Congress meets in Austin this week to draft its legislative and state-agency advocacy agenda.
