Texas Physician Practices on Shaky Grounds

The March 14th issue of The American Medical News reported thatĀ  a higher percentage of physicians in 2010 used money from their personal savings or obtained bank loans to keep their practices afloat according to preliminary results of a survey published on Feb. 28th by the Texas Medical Assn. The data from a survey of 3,580 member and nonmember physicians in Texas also showed that 61% said their income decreased in 2009 and 2010; and 69% had cash flow problems becauseĀ  government and private insurer payments arrived late, below what was billed, or never arrived.
