    • Check Out Me & My Doctor

      A decade or two ago, health care was strictly between patients and their doctors. Patients and their doctors had candid and open conversations and were in charge. That’s not the case today. Instead, the government, insurance companies, and politicians are making the decisions. Health care has become too bureaucratic, too confusing, and too complicated.

      Plus, with all the rhetoric surrounding health care – everyone is confused.

      We want to help patients and doctors find a new and better way to talk to each other. The purpose of TMA's new Me & My Doctor blog is to create a dialogue between patients and doctors where they can discuss important health care issues, such as the new health law, government health insurance programs (Medicare, Medicaid and TRICARE), health insurance, and hundreds of other topics. We invite you to join to the discussion. Please feel free to ask questions, share your concerns and insights.
