Healthy Vision 2020
We desperately need an unobstructed, clear view of the future of health care in Texas. Our growing population, beset by expensive acute and chronic diseases, doesn’t have enough physicians to care for them. The legislature’s view of the massive state Medicaid budget rarely extends beyond what it takes to balance this year’s budget. Many physicians face the deluge of new laws, rules, and regulations that keeps coming between them and their patients. With Healthy Vision 2020, we bring into focus a clear and distinct view of the rest of this decade in Texas health care.
