115.005 Charity Care

115.005

Charity Care: Recognizing the problems of access to medical and health care for the indigent, Texas physicians should voluntarily provide charity care to those who are unable to pay and to donate time to public clinics. Existing community facilities should be utilized to provide care for the medically indigent, and state agencies should augment existing community resources to provide primary care services where such assistance is necessary (Council on Medical Education, p 89, A-94; reaffirmed CME Rep. 4-A-04; reaffirmed CM-PDHCA Rep. 2-A-14).
