Re-instate in-network status for thousands of Texas State Employees!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

On Sept. 1, 2017, University of Texas Southwest medical center dropped thousands of Texas State Employees from in-network status. In many cases, this will either cause the ill to postpone or entirely forgo serious or life-saving procedures. At the least, this status change can cause significant delays to the already lengthy life-saving procedures, such as transplants or other major surgery. I'm one of those people whose lives are devastated--approved to have a kidney transplant after an extensive vetting process lasting months. Now we'll have to begin the lengthy process at another center from square 1. And I am not alone. In Lubbock, dozens who are under the care of the TTU University Medical Center Transplant Center, which partners with UT Southwestern, are in a similar position. Statewide, the numbers run into the hundreds.

Please join me in making it clear that this isituation  is both inhumane and unsupportable. Let the administration know that people are more important than the bottom line. Let our voices be heard, and request that this decision to exclude the employees of the State of Texas be overturned.
