Lobbying docs and what they want

The Mass Medical Society tweets to ask  — are we signed up for doctors day at the state house?

Join Your Colleagues at the State House for Doctors’ Day: Monday, May 9, 2011
The Massachusetts Medical Society is fighting for physicians on many fronts. This is your opportunity to meet with your local legislators and speak to them on such important issues as:

  • Physician tiering and health care quality
  • Physician payment reform
  • Defensive medicine
  • Tobacco control
  • State budget priorities

WBUR’s Commonhealth reports on some of the doctor’s priorities:

 

The Massachusetts Medical Society was busy today trying to block a slew of health bills that would give certain providers, ranging from naturopaths to nurse midwives and physician assistants, greater authority and scope in their practices. (And thereby, theoretically, diminish the power of physicians).
