This year’s Medicine Day legislative reception was another big success, with more than 150 physicians in attendance to meet with their state lawmakers.

More than 30 state legislators and representatives from Governor Fallin’s office attended the event and heard from physicians regarding the important issues they are considering this year that will impact the practice of medicine. A particular focus this year was on legislation that would take the state Medicaid system away from its traditional fee-for-service basis and implement a managed care model. The state tried this approach in the 1990s and the results were disastrous. Hundreds of Oklahoma physicians stopped accepting Medicaid patients, creating an access to care crisis for some of Oklahoma’s most vulnerable citizens. The state was eventually forced to scrap the managed care experiment and OSMA is working to educate lawmakers about the need to avoid going down this path once again.

In addition to OSMA, this year’s Medicine Day was co-sponsored by the Oklahoma Society of Anesthesiologists, the Oklahoma Academy of Ophthalmology and the Oklahoma chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Physicians and American College of Cardiology.

A very big thank you to everyone who helped make Medicine Day a success!
