Health Maintenance Organizations: The Texas Medical Association supports multiple approaches to health care delivery, offering the broadest freedom of choice, and innovations which improve health care for the people of Texas. TMA endorses health maintenance organizations as one system of prepaid health care delivery if operated (1) in compliance with all provisions of the Texas Medical Practice Act, including the acts' current prohibition of the corporate practice of medicine; and (2) in accordance with the Principles of Medical Ethics. In addition, TMA believes that health maintenance organizations should not receive governmental grant and loan subsidies (Council on Socioeconomics, p 179, I-94; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 3-A-04; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 2-A-14).
