190.022 Medicaid and CHIP Funding and Access to Care for Children

190.022

Medicaid and CHIP Funding and Access to Care for Children: The Texas Medical Association will work toward improving access to care for Texas children by opposing legislative proposals for Medicaid and CHIP funding cuts and supporting increased reimbursement for Medicaid and CHIP; by educating communities and taxpayers about the negative impact of shifting costs from the state budget to local economies; and by emphasizing that physicians and providers of health care for children under Medicaid and CHIP must receive reimbursement parity with Medicare (Amended Res. 406-A-03; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 1-A-13).
