Virtual MSSNY’S PHYSICIAN ADVOCACY DAY
The format will follow previous years formats, where assembled physicians and allies will hear from legislative leaders in the morning (this year via Zoom), and then have virtual visits with their respective legislators in the afternoon.
With the Governor and the State Legislature needing to create tens of billions of savings to the State Budget, any number of healthcare programs of interest to physicians could be on the table, not to mention concerns with the numerous proposals to inappropriately expand the scope of practice for various n on-physicians as well as numerous proposals to mandate how physicians provide care to their patients.
TUESDAY MARCH 2ND, 2021
