180.003 Managed Care Referral Practices

180.003

Managed Care Referral Practices: The Texas Medical Association voted to work with the Texas Department of Insurance to conduct a review of specialty referral practiced in managed care plans to assure that access to appropriate physician care is not restricted. Based on such review, appropriate regulatory and legal actions should be undertaken to eliminate the practice of nonphysicians making medical referral judgments for medical care (Res. 28E, p 175, I-92; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 3-A-04; amended CSE Rep. 2-A-14).
