235.002

Individual Responsibility for Health Care and Funding: The Texas Medical Association reaffirms the importance of individual responsibility for health care and health care funding where possible and societal responsibility where funding is unavailable. In addition, TMA encourages liaison and dialogue with other sectors of society, including members of the health professions, allied health, personnel, researchers, pharmacists, pharmaceutical manufacturers, health insurers, business and industry, liability insurers, and patients, to effect private sector sources of funding for promised health care in addition to direct federal, state, and local government assistance (YPS, p 155, I-90; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 5-I-01; amended CSE Rep. 8-A-11).
