ADVOCACY ISSUES DOMINATE AMA MEETING
Replacing the Medicare SGR formula, protecting physician practices from the ravages of the 90-day grace period in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace plans, scope of practice, and license recertification were the hottest topics in the opening days of the AMA House of Delegates meeting.

The three days we spent on Capitol Hill before the meeting have particularly informed our perspective. Look for a more complete report in next week’s EVPGram and in January’s Texas Medicine.
