As part of their “Conversation With” series, which highlights leaders in the North Texas community, D CEO Healthcare sat down with TMA President Dr. Gary Floyd to discuss a range of topics – from restoring trust in medicine to transgender care and legislative priorities. Here’s an excerpt:
“When the public health emergency is declared over, over a million people will lose coverage in Texas. We’ve been trying to work with our legislators about targeted plans to extend coverage. We would like to continue to cover children from birth through six months and expand it to have 12 months of eligibility; We would like to cover pregnant moms postpartum for 12 months. We are trying to improve payment for delivering Medicaid services that haven’t been changed in over 20 years.”
