The March issue of Texas Medicine features a cover story on the rise in school vaccine exemptions among Texas students. Physicians hold hope that this year's dramatic national increase in cases of mumps, including an outbreak in Texas, might give medicine-friendly lawmakers further opportunity to release more data to parents on how many students in their children's schools have received an exemption. The March issue also includes coverage of legal concerns regarding updates to the National Practitioner Data Bank's NPDB Guidebook, new TMA data showing physicians' passion and persistence are paying off as they attempt to negotiate the terms of their health plan contracts, and a guide to understanding how health care rating websites operate.
