Vision: Improving the Health of All Texans
Mission: Empowering Texas Physicians in the Practice of Medicine
From payment increases to maternal and drug coverage gains, this issue breaks down the host of changes to Medicaid programs TMA secured during the 2023 legislative session and what they mean for your practice, especially at a time when hundreds of thousands of patients are losing coverage. Plus, integration of the state prescription monitoring program into electronic health record systems is again free to physicians following TMA advocacy, and how to address human trafficking.
The Texas Medical Association installed Dallas surgeon Rick Snyder, MD, as its 158th president. He took office in a ceremony before TMA’s House of Delegates policymaking body at TexMed, TMA’s annual conference, in Fort Worth. He will lead America’s largest state medical society for one year.
TMA Awards Highest Honor to Two Physicians: “This is Why Organized Medicine Is So Important” TMA bestowed the Distinguished Service Award on past President Diana Fite, MD, and El Paso pediatric infectious disease specialist Gilbert Handel, MD, celebrating their decades of work and dedication to the profession of medicine. It was just the fourth time TMA has presented the award to two physicians at once.
Listening and responding to physicians and their concerns are what drive TMA’s programs and initiatives. Do you have an idea to share or an opinion about how we can do something better? We want to hear from you!
