Come to Winter Conference Jan. 28-29

    Uncertainty regarding the effects of health system reform has many physicians caught in a holding pattern. Pending regulations have prompted unprecedented interest by hospitals and large groups to employ physicians. Medicaid expansions and budget shortfalls have state legislators scrambling for new health care delivery and funding options. Compounding the ambiguity, Congress has yet to correct an unredeemable Medicare payment formula that has many doubting the long-term viability of their medical practices.

    Join your colleagues at TMA's 2011 Winter Conference Jan. 28-29 at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin to discuss these important issues. Here's the schedule:
