Let Our Doctors Own
Speaking of the ACA, we are once again working with the Coalition of State Medical Societies and Congress to reverse the ACA-imposed ban on physician-owned hospitals. The ACA makes future hospital ownership illegal for physicians who go to medical school, obtain a license to practice medicine, care for Medicare patients, and then want to refer their Medicare patients to a hospital in which they may have ownership. TMA promotes responsible ownership of all health care facilities, whether owned by a physician, hospital, or other provider.
