TMA joins 11 state specialty societies in 34-page letter to TDI


By Mary E. Nava, MBA

Chief Governmental and Community Relations Officer 


In response to the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) invitation for comment, TMA joined with 11 state specialty societies and submitted a 34-page letter commenting on TDI's draft rule proposal on HMO network adequacy and out-of-network payment provisions. To read the letter, click here.


As TDI's proposal is still a working draft, more revisions are expected. Additional information will be provided in this column as details become available.


For local discussion on this and other advocacy topics, consider joining the BCMS Legislative and Socioeconomics Committee by contacting Mary Nava.
