TMA, TPS, and Others Push Texas Medicaid to Help Save Primary Care

The Texas Medical Association has released a new article about efforts to push Texas Medicaid to help primary care practices. TPS members and staff participated in a key meeting with HHSC leadership this week to make Pediatrician voices heard.

"Leaders of the Texas Medical Association and four large primary care specialty societies on Wednesday painted for senior Medicaid officials the bleak fiscal picture of many physician practices, and requested immediate financial assistance.

They left the hour-long conference call with assurances that some good news will be coming soon for primary care practices ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic."
