Dear Dr. Wax:
I also sent this to AAPS for review regarding AOA mandating membership fees yearly to stay compliant and keep our board certification ACTIVE. Even though my board certification certificate is time-dated effective from 1-1-2015 through 12-31-2022, the AOA indicates that if I don’t do the OCC=Osteopathic Continuous Certification and pay my yearly mandated membership with the AOA then my Osteopathic Board Certification in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulation Medicine will no longer be effective.
I believe that this is a violation of our constitutional rights, antitrust, and other violations.
I would like to see if we can get all the board certified time dated Osteopathic Physicians on board with us to file a class-action law suit against all involved.
Thanks so much. Please keep me posted.
Gina Reghetti, D.O.
