What a year 2014 is going to be! As I mentioned in my address to our House of Delegates (HOD) in October 2013 (see YouTube video at, ASA will navigate this year based on our strategic plan, developed by your Administrative Council (AC) and additional Society thought leaders, and prioritized by your Board of Directors (BOD).
We will navigate the uncharted waters of health care reform, including the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We will work tirelessly to repeal two of the most unfavorable aspects of this law: the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) and the non-discrimination clause. In fact, your ASA delegation to the American Medical Association (AMA) worked successfully this past year to have repeal of this non-discrimination clause placed as a priority advocacy item for the AMA.
