Internal medicine physicians recommend key elements to guide state initiatives
Date:9/14/2007

Washington -- A white paper that examines various state initiatives to expand access to health insurance, as well as proposals by the President and Congress in support of state efforts, was distributed today by the American College of Physicians (ACP).

Many of the proposals already have been signed into law and are in various stages of implementation. Others are proposals by state legislatures and Governors that currently are being debated.
