    Outside the USA, Podiatrist are almost always classified as 'Allied Health' --- i am familiar with the US debates re physcians and efforts being made by the APMA.

    Is that a forum outside the US? It just seems really ignorant to me?

    Its obviously a US forum, but I do take the point about having a seperate forum for anything when the forum is not active - there are a couple here I am thinking of deleting.

    Texas has been excluded from the Medicaid program since October 2004. There is a push by the TPMA to reverse this situation. I've already had to refer numerous diabetic foot infections to the orthopods , vascular and general surgeons. I would like to see the medicaid program go HMO where the podiatric surgeon can have the complicated patients referred to us.
