AMS, Inc, is a non-profit organization that works to educate and give voice to America’s patients, physicians, and healthcare professionals. Their ‘Obamacare Debate’ challenge to the AMA is necessary and timely

 

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Before the ‘Affordable Care Act’ (aka Obamacare) was signed into law in March of 2010, there were a series of high-level deals struck by the White House to help insure success for the struggling legislation. One of these involved the American Medical Association (AMA). American doctors have always wanted healthcare access for all patients, but the majority of physicians were not behind the AMA’s decision to support Obamacare. With less than 15% membership of practicing doctors in the nation, the AMA was in no position to speak on behalf of physicians.

This is why the ‘white coat’ ceremonies on the East Lawn of the White House were such a farce.  “They were literally a slap in the face to the average American and the average doctor, who did not support Obamacare and who were not given their justified ‘voice’ on the subject,” says  America’s Medical Society (AMS) founder and President, Doctor Adam Dorin.

Before and after the law was signed, Doctor Dorin and his colleagues tried to get the American Medical Association to sit down for a nationally broadcast debate on the subject. The terms and circumstance of the debate were not important to Dorin-his only goal being “to give the American people and their representatives in Washington, D.C. a chance to hear the real problems facing patients and doctors so that prudent, intelligent, and effective reform could be written into workable legislation.”

Unfortunately, deals had already been reached in secrecy, and the debate challenge was never taken or even acknowledged. “Now,” says Dorin, “there’s one last chance for the AMA to become relevant:  with the Supreme Court positioned to take up the constitutionality of the law and with record numbers of Americans opposed to the law, a debate today could never be more important.”

The AMA may legally own the copyrights to control all ‘point and click’ licensee fees for medical billing numbers (called “CPT codes”), and they may profit off of these copyrights to the tune of almost $100 million dollars annually, but this should not entitle them to control the healthcare reform conversation on behalf of the majority of doctors.

Adds Dorin, “The AMA is currently paying millions for television ads imploring Congress to avert a cut to doctors’ Medicare fees, and we support their intentions; but where were they when docs were asking only for honest representation on healthcare reform?  AMS believes that professional associations should be loyal to their constituents.”
