Earlier this week, physician leaders from the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS) advocated on issues that are important to your practice at the American Medical Association's (AMA) National Advocacy Conference in Washington, DC. After the AMA briefings, physicians and staff met with members of the Michigan Congressional Delegation to emphasize our support of making high quality, affordable health care coverage accessible to all Americans; the impact of rising prescription drug costs; and, to advocate for administrative simplification related to the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). MSMS physician members shared real life stories of how these issues affect their practices and patients, which is a powerful tool for making changes at the federal level.
