TMA Leaders Forecast the Future on Critical 2017 Legislative Issues
What steps can we take today that will help convince the 2017 Texas Legislature to raise physicians’ Medicaid payment rates? Which nonphysician practitioner group will be most creative in its 2017 push to expand its scope of practice? What tactics will serve us best in the 2017 battle to preserve balance billing? Those are the kinds of questions Texas medicine’s leaders will tackle at a special meeting this week at the start of the TMA 2015 Fall Conference. The group, convened by the TMA Board of Trustees, includes the chairs of all TMA councils and the presidents and CEOs of our largest county medical societies. The issues we’ll examine include scope of practice, the corporate practice of medicine, telemedicine, Medicaid, balance billing and transparency, and end-of-life care.
