• "Hey, Doc"

    Answers to Questions You Never Thought To Ask About the New Health Insurance Marketplace

    Hey, Doc 150 Physicians are Americans’ most trusted source for information on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to a recent national poll, but that's not where they're getting their news. The Texas Medical Association is about to change all of that.

    TMA’s “Hey, Doc” educational campaign will provide objective and nonpartisan answers to your most frequently asked questions about the new ACA health insurance marketplace. We want to ensure all Texans understand what the marketplace does and what steps they need to take.

    The ACA marketplace began accepting applications Oct. 1, 2013.

    TMA will provide pertinent, objective, and timely content each week on this website, to Texas physicians, and to the news media. Every Wednesday, TMA will post a new video featuring Board of Trustee Chair Carlos "Hey Doc" Cardenas, MD, answering your questions about the ACA.
