Open Letter to All Physicians

D.O.’s and M.D.’s are up in arms about all of the mandates coming down from the federal government, state governments, insurance companies, HMO’s, malpractice carriers, and hospitals.

U.S. physicians are the most over-regulated profession in history.

Doctors, both D.O.’s and MD’s, are particularly disturbed when many of the onerous mandates are instituted by their own parent organizations that were supposed to be representing them.

Let’s work together to turn it around.  AOA and AMA should send a message to all of their members that these membership organizations now actively oppose Maintenance of Licensure procedures that are being promoted by the FSMB.

After that, we can start working on the restrictions created by OCC, MOC, ACGME, ICD-10, CAP, PQRS, Needs Assessment, COMLEX, and all the other burdensome acronyms.

Respectfully submitted,
Robert S. Maurer, D.O, a concerned physician
