Congress urged to preserve funding for "critical" health
programs, reform physician payments, and authorize health court
June 6, 2012
Washington - Nearly 400 internal medicine physicians and medical
students from 44 states and the District of Columbia gathered in
Washington today for the annual American College of Physicians
(ACP) Services Leadership Day on Capitol Hill. Celebrating its
twentieth anniversary, the program is recognized as being highly
effective in increasing the visibility of internal medicine issues
on Capitol Hill and building leaders who are trained to advocate
for the College's positions throughout the year.
"I welcome all of you here today because I know that you
believe, like me, that being a good physician requires more than
knowing about the latest treatments," David L. Bronson, MD, FACP,
president of ACP, told Leadership Day attendees today. "It is also
important to be an advocate for the best public policies. They are
policies that benefit our patients and are in accordance with the
highest standards of our profession."
Following an intensive day of in-depth learning of the issues,
how best to talk with Members of Congress about those issues, and
how to follow up after a Hill visit, the delegates will go to the
Hill to tell their "real-life" stories on Thursday. This year, they
will concentrate their messages on the effects budget cuts and
sequestration will have on their patients and practices; payment
reform, especially the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), and their
support of the Medicare Physician Payment Innovation Act, H.R.
5707; and health courts.
Specifically, attendees will be asking their members of Congress
and Senators to:
"Leadership Day this year brings some special challenges," Dr.
Bronson emphasized. "Congress remains divided on partisan and
ideological grounds, and there is a renewed focus on the federal
budget and the national deficit. Congress has so many things on its
plate right now and an election looming in the fall; all of it
influenced by each party's desire to advance its own policy
A series of issue background materials along with legislative
and regulatory panels helped clarify the challenges for the nearly
400 internal medicine specialists on hand.
They also recognized several outstanding state ACP policy
advocates and the winner of the annual Richard Neubauer Advocate
for Internal Medicine Award. Formerly known as the Key Contact of
the Year Award, the Neubauer Advocate Award recognizes the advocate
who has made exceptional contributions to advance the College's
public policy agenda. A former member of the ACP Board of Regents,
a former ACP Alaska Chapter Governor and the recipient of the 2004
Key Contact of the Year Award, Dr. Neubauer passed away last
For her outstanding advocacy efforts in 2011, Dr. Rebecca
Andrews of Canton, Conn. received the 2012 Richard Neubauer
Advocate for Internal Medicine Award. She was cited for her efforts
in working with a Conn. Congressman and the state's media to
reinforce ACP's stance on health reform and the Affordable Care
