American Medical Association backs Affordable Care Act reforms

side note: The American Medical Association, the nation’s largest lobby of healthcare professionals has come out in support of the President’s Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act? Will this support be enough to sway Congress into passing the legislation.

WASHINGTON – Led by Temple cardiologist J. James Rohack, the American Medical Association committed in May to support the White House’s effort to expand coverage to millions of uninsured and dramatically cut health care costs.

The move was a calculation that the AMA could help pass a sweeping health care overhaul while securing its own prized goals: caps on medical lawsuit awards and the repeal of a formula that annually threatens to cut Medicare payments to doctors.
