    TMA Wins Big for You in 2015 Legislative SessionIn a 2015 legislative session marked by new state leadership, new money, and big shifts in how Texas' major health care agencies oversee care delivery, the House of Medicine remained as steady as ever in its mission to ensure physicians can give their patients the best care possible. That resolve paid off in significant victories that largely build on the Texas Medical Association's 2013 legislative successes.

    Accountable Care Leadership Program Graduates First ClassPhysicians say health care transformation should be led by the very ones who are delivering the care: physicians. A group of doctors from all around the state are prepared to walk the talk this month as inaugural graduates from the Texas Medical Association's Accountable Care Leadership Program.
  • U.S. Congress
    Victory! SGR Repealed“An immense weight has been lifted from the shoulders of American medicine," TMA President Austin King said April 14 after the U.S. Senate voted 92-8 to repeal Medicare's Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. The move followed overwhelming approval in the House the previous month and barely averted an SGR-mandated 21-percent cut in physicians' Medicare payments. TMA has fought to kill the SGR for 13 years.

    TMA's Advocacy Blueprint for the DecadeThe second edition articulates specifically what we are asking of the Texas Legislature, the U.S. Congress, and state and federal regulators. The recommendations range from the simple (Put ICD-10 on permanent hold) to the complex (Devise and enact a system for providing health care to low-income Texans with realistic payment to physicians, less stifling state bureaucracy, and no fraud-and-abuse witch hunts) to the most fundamental (Pass no laws or regulations that interfere with the patient-physician relationship).
