The Family Medicine PAC is the political voice for family physicians and their patients in Michigan. Your contribution today can help MAFP continue to fight for your specialty and better advocate for the needs of you and your patients in Lansing.
Healthcare is a hot political issue and in order to protect the needs and interests of family medicine, members must contribute to the Family Medicine PAC. This political reality – while perhaps unfortunate – is understood by your colleagues and competitors alike. Here are some of the top PACs in Michigan:
MI Trial Lawyer Association – $1,062,264
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan – $870,435
MI Health and Hospital Association – $518,160
MI State Medical Society – $167,777
MI Association of Health Plans – $142,825
MI Dental Association – $111,520
MI Osteopathic Association – $100,202
MI Chiropractic Society – $51,715
MI Association of Nurse Anesthetists – $39,287
Family Medicine PAC – $15,000
In order to maintain relevance among so many powerful competing interests, the Family Medicine PAC needs members to make a contribution no matter how small. The goal for 2011 is to be listed among the top 150 PACs in Michigan.
The Family Medicine PAC allows MAFP to fight for payment reform to enhance reimbursement for primary care services, continue to protect our tort reform laws, and battle against scope expansion by non-physician extenders like Advance Practices Nurses (APNs) and physical therapists.
Do your part and give what you can today. Any amount makes a difference, but if every MAFP member gave $100, we could be among the most powerful interest groups in Lansing. The stronger the Family Medicine PAC becomes, the stronger we can fight for family physicians.
