NEW YORK TIMES FEATURES TMA RED-TAPE-CUTTING BILL

Senate Bill 166 and other pieces of TMA’s anti-red-tape agenda were the focus of a piece in Sunday’s New York Times. The story quotes TMA President Michael Speer, MD, and Council on Socioeconomics Chair Buddy Swift Jr., DO. Along with the driver license swipe bill, the story discusses our bills to standardize health plan preauthorization forms for prescriptions and medical services. The bills are part of our Healthy Vision 2020 plan for “legislative solutions to cut through the red tape, regulations, and other unproductive elements that do nothing to improve quality and everything to interfere with doctors’ ability to practice medicine efficiently and effectively.”
