Texas Delegation Brings Four Resolutions to AMA Meeting


Following up on the actions of the TMA House of Delegates, Texas physicians are presenting four resolutions for consideration by the AMA house. They are:
  • A call for AMA to ask Congress to “act rapidly” to repeal all penalties for noncompliance with Medicare’s electronic health records incentive program and meaningful use requirements;

  • A call for AMA to work with Congress to require real-time notification to physicians when patients are within the 45- or 30-day COBRA grace periods;

  • A request for AMA to “evaluate and work to establish consensus regarding the appropriate value of resident and fellow services”; and

  • A directive for AMA to support legislation to “prevent and divert prostitution” rather than criminalize it.
