As a cardiologist, you won some key victories in the 2017 Texas Legislature. Here are some highlights:
- House Bill 3476 would have required preparticipation electrocardiograms for all school student athletes, a test that not every student athlete needs and one that could result in false positives, which could ultimately harm students and their parents.
- Medicine-backed basis of Senate Bill 680 shortens how quickly a physician can override an insurer's step-therapy plan from the current 53 days to just three days, and it prevents patients from having to go through the step therapy process a second time if their coverage changes.
Check out all that TMA accomplished in the 2017 session for physicians and patients.
