Some in AMA want to revise stances on health reform

Chicago Tribune, June 14, 2010

Less than three months after the American Medical Association endorsed the health reform plan that became law, some within the nation's largest doctors group want a new prescription for healthcare, the Chicago Tribune reports. Several influential delegations at the AMA annual policymaking meeting said they would like the group to revise its stance to push for eliminating a 21% cut in Medicare payments, raise doctor pay from state Medicaid programs, and advocate for sweeping liability reform.
