260.108 Addressing the Diaper Gap


260.108 Addressing the Diaper Gap: The Texas Medical Association encourages physicians to screen for social and economic risk factors in order to support care plans and to direct patients to appropriate local social support resources. TMA will provide information to members on community resources related to free and low-cost diapers and other basic material needs. TMA recognizes diapers, especially for adults, are a basic and essential health care necessity that helps to mitigate disease and illness and enables many to remain at home, and supports efforts to remove the state sales tax applied to diapers.
