WORKING FOR A TEXAS-STYLE MEDICAID SOLUTION


Discussions in and around the state Capitol are moving away from a yes/no answer to Obama-style Medicaid expansion for Texas and toward development of a Texas-style Medicaid reform plan. TMA supports a Medicaid solution for Texas that fixes our broken system and allows physicians to provide patient care in a more efficient and affordable fashion. We want to improve Medicaid patients’ access to timely and affordable medical care by increasing physician payments to equal Medicare rates, reducing red tape and administrative hassles, and ensuring fair fraud-and-abuse investigations. For more details, see TMA President Michael Speer’s recent column on the topic. Keep up with the extensive press coverage of the Texas discussion and recent news from other state capitals on our curated Medicaid reform page.
