"Today, the American Medical Association is honored that President Obama will speak directly to physicians at our annual meeting. Like President Obama, the AMA is committed to health reform this year that provides all Americans with affordable, high-quality health coverage.

"The AMA is actively engaged with the administration and members of Congress to achieve coverage for all this year and other meaningful reforms that benefit patients and physicians.

"The AMA is focused on reform that covers the uninsured, makes insurance more affordable, increases the value we receive from our health care spending and enhances prevention and wellness for all patients. We look forward to the day when all Americans have health care coverage."
