Texas Health Care is different from many physician groups, because it has no outside ownership interest. Its physicians are members, not employees – they work only for themselves and their patients. Physicians are able to take advantage of the comprehensive administrative support that Texas Health Care provides for all of its members, allowing them to focus on health care. In addition, all physicians – even the newest members – have an equal say in the governance of the group.
