AAAAI Supports Important Issues at AMA Meeting

The AAAAI co-sponsored two resolutions at the House of Delegates meeting in June 2014. George R. Green, MD, FAAAAI, AAAAI’s representative to AMA, spoke in support of Resolution 724, regarding health insurance formulary transparency. He informed the House of Delegates of patients who had chosen health insurance providers based on access to prescriptions for asthma, later to be notified that their medications were removed from the formulary and no longer covered. The second resolution, Resolution 608, encouraged reconsideration of onerous restrictions on travel by government-employed scientists.

Both of these resolutions successfully passed the House of Delegates and are to be supported by AMA advocacy for legislative or regulatory action.
