The December issue of Texas Medicine features a cover story on the proposed Aetna-Humana merger, which TMA and physicians across Texas say will result in less competition in the marketplace and higher health insurance premiums. In the issue, you'll also find information on the impact social media has had on marketing a physician practice, TMF Health Quality Institute resources that will better position doctors for the rapid transition to value-based payment, the need for an update to Texas law that would give physicians the power to hold dangerous patients for a finite length of time, and the move to virtual credit cards by some health plans and third-party vendors that process plan payments.
