Board Builds Stronger TMA


The TMA Board of Trustees met for a day-long look forward and back at the state of the association. The board focused on our three core functions: membership, member advocacy, and member education. Board Chair Doug Curran, MD, led board members and senior TMA staff through discussions of challenges and opportunities, and helped draft a work plan for the coming year. In the advocacy arena, for example, we see six areas where TMA will have to develop new strategies for success:
  • Medicaid,
  • Physician-directed delivery systems and the Medicaid 1115 waiver,
  • End-of-life issues,
  • Scope of practice,
  • Balance billing and fee transparency,
  • Protecting the prohibition on the corporate practice of medicine and stopping abuses by 5.01(a) organizations, and
  • Building stronger coalitions with county medical societies and state specialty societies.
