New AMA Ads Blast Senate Inaction on Medicare Cuts That Begin Today
Date:7/1/2008

insurance companies' huge profits at the expense of Medicare patients' access to doctors."

"The AMA is activating a full-court press - both advertising and grassroots - in the states during the Independence Day recess," said Dr. Nielsen. "Over the month of June, more than 41,000 calls by patients and physicians have been made to Congress urging action through the AMA's grassroots hotline alone. Physicians and patients will be holding their senators' feet to the fire."

"Our Patients Action Network is open now to anyone who wants to voice their concern about Medicare cuts at http://www.PatientsActionNetwork.org or by calling 888-434-6200," said Dr. Nielsen. "It's crucial that Congress act - and that they know America's patients will not stand idly by as access to care for seniors, the disabled and military families is put at risk."

"It boils down to this - insurance company profits or patients and the physicians who care for them," said Dr. Nielsen. "America's physicians urge senators who voted against action to use this holiday recess to review the facts about H.R. 6331 and then take immediate action upon their return to Washington."
