A Call to End OCC and Mandatory AOA Membership

Dear Dr. Wax:

I emailed you two letters that you might want to post on IP4PI.  They relate to the letter that I wrote to AOBFP on May 21.

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.

Respectfully,

Gina Reghetti, D.O.

I am writing to inquire if the OCC, the Osteopathic Continuous Certification process is required to keep my Ohio Medical license. Continue reading
