Texas Medicine Interviews New HHSC Commissioner

Texas Medicine, the Texas Medical Association’s (TMA’s) monthly physician publication, sat down with Texas Health and Human Services (HHSC) executive commissioner Kyle Janek, MD. When TMA staff Amy Sorrel asked the anesthesiologist and former state senator about Medicaid and how to improve physician participation in the program, Dr. Janek replied he “would love to see [Texas] create a system of excellence, and quality, and better reimbursement to providers of all stripes that encourages those providers to knock on the door and say, ‘Hey, I want in.”

Watch Ms. Sorrel and Dr. Janek discuss Medicaid, fraud investigations, women's health, and other key issues he and the state face.
