Two GIs' Views: What Health-Care Reform Means for GI Practice
The legislative changes mandated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will affect the entire GI and general medical community — as providers, taxpayers, employers, small business owners and patients. Read two thought-provoking new posts by AGA members in the AGA Washington Insider, a policy blog for GIs. Kimberly L. Beavers, MD, MPH, and Lawrence R. Kosinski, MD, MBA, AGAF, FACG, cover issues such as accountable care organizations, colorectal cancer screening, new tax laws, health insurance for employees and the independent payment advisory board, which have the potential to drastically change how GIs manage their businesses and practice medicine.
