Did we earn your trust again this year? Texas physicians “vote” with their checkbooks starting this week, and I’m confident most of you will give us a resounding“yes!” when the 2014 TMA dues statements arrive in your mailbox this week. Here’s why. This was one of our best state legislative sessions in recent memory, with strong victories on scope of practice, graduate medical education, red-tape reduction, and public health improvement. Thanks to leadership from two Texans who listen to what their doctor-constituents tell them, Congress is finally making some real progress on repealing Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. And right here in the TMA building, we’re putting together a Physician Services Organization that will deliver the survival tools you need to compete in today’s health care environment. As TMA President Steve Brotherton, MD, says, “These successes prove what we can accomplish when we unite in one voice. Please renew your TMA membership. It’s an important investment in your future and that of your patients.”
