    Here's what we're working on for the September issue of Texas Medicine - your next opportunity for advertising!

    COVER STORY

    Texas is eyeing an Oklahoma solution to physicians' woes with burdensome maintenance of certification (MOC) programs: Pass a state law that bans MOC as a condition of licensure, hospital privileges, and payment.

     

    LEGISLATIVE AFFAIRS

    Based on initial rules for implementing the new Medicare physician payment system under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), TMA has major concerns the so-called solution to the once-maligned Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) may be worse than the original problem. This story will track TMA's relentless advocacy through a dedicated MACRA Task Force to analyze and fix the draft Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services draft rule.

     

    PUBLIC HEALTH

    TMA is working to educate both physicians and the public following the passage of a bill last year requiring state-provided information about Down syndrome to be provided to parents whose children receive a diagnosis of the disorder. House Bill 3374 requires the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to produce information including potential physical and developmental outcomes, treatment options, and contact information for education and support programs.

     

    PRACTICE MANAGEMENT

    Embezzlement is a risk for many practices. With TMA Practice Consulting receiving a recent run of calls on recruiting practice administrators and office staff, we'll take a look at what it takes to recruit a good candidate to staff your practice.

     

    LAW

    TMA and several other organizations, including the Texas Alliance for Patient Access and the Texas Hospital Association, are planning to support a physician's claim that a standard for "willful and wanton" negligence in state code applies to a lawsuit involving the physician.
