Title of Proposal:
Resolution revising health care legislation
On behalf of:
Richmond Academy of Medicine
Describe the Idea or Issue:
The Affordable Care Act was developed to address problems both in access to health care for our citizens and to halt the increasing cost of health care in our nation. There will continue to be legislative efforts to improve our current health care plan but whatever our political views, physicians have a major social responsibility for the patient population they serve to be sure the current health plans keeps in mind the best interests of their patients.
That the Medical Society of Virginia assist physicians in Virginia communicate to the public and to our legislators our strong support for the 2017 American Medical Association list of guiding principles for health insurance and Health care access for any future federal or Commonwealth government health care plans.
