TMA Fund Supports Medical Families in Crisis

A dedicated East Texas physician finds himself struggling with dementia and other physical ailments in his later years, with his wife by his side caring for him. Funds dwindle as the Smiths (not their real name) make needed accessibility updates to their home and pay for health insurance.

As the days and months pass, and with no support from family, the wife begins to wear down from her role as caretaker. She needs a break. Mrs. Smith reaches out to TMA’s Physicians Benevolent Fund (PBF) for assistance, and PBF provides funding for respite care so she can have a few hours each week to tend to her needs.

The Smiths are just one of hundreds of families PBF has helped throughout its 60-year history. Others include a widow left to support herself and her young children, a physician who became chronically ill and unable to practice, and a physician’s spouses left with tremendous debt after the death of her husband.

PBF fills the gap for physicians and their immediate families when they find themselves in desperate financial crisis and unable to meet their day-to-day needs. Recipients receive monthly help to pay for personal necessities -- rent or mortgage, utilities, health insurance, medical bills, clothing, and food.

If you know a physician or a physician's family who could benefit, please direct them to the PBF webpage for qualification details and the confidential questionnaire. Or contact Chris.Johnson@texmed.org, PBF director. TMA strives to protect the anonymity of fund recipients.

If you’d like to help sustain the funds to support physicians in need, contribute via secure, online donation, or send a check to The Physicians Benevolent Fund, Attn: TMA Finance Department, 401 W. 15th St., Austin, TX 78701-1680. Contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law and may be in the form of honoraria or memorials.

Happy National Doctors’ Day
