It was difficult to miss the headlines over the last week: "Doctors pocketed $77 billion from Medicare in 2012." The Obama Administration released the information in a "data dump," which was, “designed to make the health care system more transparent and accountable," according to one CMS official. MAFP's Immedidate Past President Dr. Chris Bush responds to the release of the data from the perspective of the family physician.
On Sunday, March 30, the nation will celebrate National Doctors' Day, which is a day that is observed annually in the United States to celebrate the contribution of physicians who serve our country by caring for its' citizens. All of us at MAFP wish to thank our members—past, present and future Family Physicians—for all that they do to ensure high-quality, cost-effective health care for all.
