PRESS RELEASE Statement attributed to: Steven J. Stack, MD President, American Medical Association The American Medical Association commends the U .S. House of Representatives for his or her efforts to remove the Medicare sequester boost and extension within the trade package. Reductions to Medicare reimbursements significantly impact patients and companies and can reduce access to care. Medicare shouldn’t be utilized as a piggybank to fund other programs. The U is encouraged by us.S. Senate to move expeditiously to make sure that any final trade package will not include dangerous Medicare cuts. Although most of those promises are dropped or dismissed, the brand new study from the AMA shows that most doctors will become sued for malpractice at some point within their careers.
