All About TMA

  • HEALTH CARE DELIVERY
    Healthy Vision 2020, Second EditionTMA's second edition of our Healthy Vision 2020, articulates specifically and directly what we are asking of the Texas Legislature, the U.S. Congress, and state and federal regulators. The recommendations range from the simple (Put ICD-10 on permanent hold) to the complex (Devise and enact a system for providing health care to low-income Texans with realistic payment to physicians, less stifling state bureaucracy, and no fraud-and-abuse witch hunts) to the most fundamental (Pass no laws or regulations that interfere with the patient-physician relationship).
  • TEXAS MEDICINE
    Prevent Embezzlement in Your PracticeMany physicians hire an office manager to take over the administrative side of the practice so the physician can do what he or she does best — care for patients. But paying bills, depositing money, handling payroll, and accepting payments from patients are everyday tasks that give office managers a lot of power over a medical practice. It's crucial that physicians keep an eye on financial operations to help keep their employees honest.
  • About TMA
    2013 TMA Annual Report
    America's biggest and best medical association emerged from three intense special sessions of the Texas Legislature in 2013 with long-sought, even precedent-setting victories that focus on patient safety and medical practice viability. TMA successfully advocated passage of bills that reduce the red tape binding your practice, give your patients new protections, bolster the state's GME program, promote transparent insurance markets, and prevent unqualified health professionals from delivering care outside their expertise.

  • TEXAS MEDICINE
    Registries Simplify Quality Reporting MandatesAs federal quality reporting mandates and noncompliance penalties add up, experts say registries can help take the sting out of the process and rev up quality improvement for physician practices. The online reporting tool is also taking a front seat over claims-based reporting as Medicare signals its plans to eventually phase out that less efficient and less clinically accurate option.
