Medical Emergency: Act Now! Preserve Access to Quality Health Care A combination of poorly informed governmental decisions and bureaucratic bungling has created a medical emergency across the state for thousands of dual-eligible Texans and the physicians who care for them. “Dual-eligible” patients are old enough to qualify for Medicare and able to qualify for Medicaid assistance because of their income. Steep budget cuts threaten their care — and may force some doctors to close their doors. Preserve access to quality health care. Please ask Texas legislators and the Legislative Budget Board to reverse the cap on Medicaid-allowable payments for dual-eligible patients and ensure physicians can continue to see these patients.
