Oklahoma Governor Signs Anti MOC/OCC Legislation!

An Oklahoma physician writes in:

Yesterday, April 11, 2016 our Governor signed a bill preventing entities from using MOC or OCC as a condition for licensure, reimbursement, employment or admitting privileges at a hospital.

Click here to read SB 1148.

This is HUGE!!! We essentially blocked ABMS and AOA lobbying efforts and hopefully blocked the Interstate Compact law (which we successfully squashed for this year’s legislative efforts).

This may be a model to squash MOC and OCC forever.

Note: This victory follows Kentucky’s anti-MOC, bill SB 17, passed earlier this year.
