Meanwhile, at the other capitol building, our federal legislators are promising to send a health system reform bill to President Obama's desk by summer's end. TMA's Health System Reform Task Force meets next week. The panel's goal is to use the 17 guiding principles our House of Delegates approved to answer 10 key questions and develop TMA's proposal for system reform. What do you want to see in our reform plan? What's critical for your practice and your patients? Please e-mail me your suggestions. We also are watching closely the actions of the Senate Finance Committee and submitted an extensive brief in response to some of the committee's initial reform plans. We called for abolition of the Medicare physician payment formula and for antitrust reform.
