TEXAS PUSH AMA TO SET HEALTH "RE-REFORM" PRIORITIES

Although the American Medical Association supported the president’s health reform bill, AMA didn’t get all that it wanted and frequently calls the law a “work in progress.” Just to make sure AMA knows what to keep and what to fix, Texas physicians attending the 2010 Interim Meeting of the AMA House of Delegates are pushing to set priority items for reforming the law. Among the issues our delegation is pushing to top the agenda:

  • Medical liability reform;
  • Repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board;
  • Repeal the fiscal noose placed on physician-owned hospitals; and
  • Make physicians responsible for defining quality care.
These recommendation and many others will come before the house Monday and Tuesday. Check out Blogged Arteries and our Twitter feed daily to stay abreast of all the action
