A very big thank you to the nearly 150 physicians and
medical students who came to Medicine Day this year to talk to legislators
about the important issues impacting health care in Oklahoma.
Medicine Day attendees had a chance to talk to their
lawmakers and hear from Rep. Mike Ritze, D.O. and Sen. Ervin Yen, M.D. on the
important issues going on at the Capitol.
HB 1013, the measure to allow nurse practitioners to have
independent practice without any sort of physician supervision, was obviously
the hot issue of the night. But doctors and lawmakers also addressed a variety
of other important topics, such as Medicaid reimbursement, maintenance of
certification, vaccinations and tanning by minors.
OSMA would like to thank PLICO, our presenting sponsor for
the event, as well as the following specialty groups who co-sponsored Medicine
Medicine Day is our best opportunity each year to present a
unified front and show lawmakers that the House of Medicine is strong together.
So thank you to everyone who helped make that possible!
