MCMS fall letter
Issues that will be addressed in legislation include:
– The scope of practice for mid-levels, most specifically nurse practitioners, and nurse anesthetists. With the influx of new patients and a lack of primary care providers there will be a push and a need to utilize mid-level health care providers at their level of skill “at the top of their license”.
– The Medicare reimbursement system-which is antiquated and does not fit with new incentives and requirements of health care. Their new website is http://www.FixMedicareNow.org.
– Auto no-fault reform.
– And there is always Tort reform.

-The Michigan state medical alliance organization, with the Muskegon county medical alliance whose mission is to work in partnerships with the MSMS and AMA to develop, implement and support educational programs that improve the public health. (web sites- http://msmsa.org and http://mcmsa.org. )
