Why join MPAF?
Medicare Cuts… Maintaining Patient Relationship… Health Insurance Reform… Provider Taxes...Non-Physician Health Care Providers…
All of these issues affect a physician's ability to practice medicine. Legislators in Maine and in Washington D.C. are making it more and more difficult to maintain control of your practice. You need to remain in the driver's seat! Legislators need to hear from you before they make decisions that affect you and your ability to practice medicine.
Reasons for Supporting MPAF
- MPAF is the only organized group advocating on your behalf in Maine.
- MPAF is experienced and successful. Over 50% of the candidates MPAF supported were elected to the state legislature!
- Without medicine-friendly candidates in the state legislature, legislation that effectively reins in managed care companies would not have been achieved.
- MPAF needs your help to have the resources to make an impact when it is needed.
