President's Message 1/19/17

Dear ACPP members and friends:

For the past several years leaders of the ACPP board including myself and Marcy Zwelling and more recently Jeff Puglisi have been working with Congress to create a viable replacement for Obamacare.  We work with an organization called the National Physician's Council for Healthcare Policy.  NPCHCP was founded by  Dr. Zwelling who is the co Chair.   I, Dr LaGrelius am the co Family Practice chair.  The ten or so leaders have been meeting twice a year in DC and regularly on the internet to help craft the bill you see discussed below.  NPCHCP actually has about 500 members and up to 90 of us come to DC for parts of our meetings.  We are sponsored by Congrssman Pete Sessions Chair of the House Rules Committee who is one of the co sponsors of the bill below along with Dr./ Senator Bill Cassidy who is also involved.  We usually meet in Pete Sessions offices and in Congressional hearing rooms such as his House Rules Committee Hearing room.  We work also with the House Republican Physicians Caucus.  Tom Price soon to he HSS Secretary is a member of that caucus as was Cassidy before being elected a Senator.  John Goodman who wrote the piece below is also part of NPCHCP as an adviser.  The bill described below is our work and his work.  We hope it will become the bill Congress coalesces around in the end and that it becomes the replace/repeal program we finally get.  Even if it is not the final bill our work has greatly influenced the thought process going into repeal and replace.  Here is one of the many ways your ACPP leadership is working for you.

Tom LaGrelius, MD, FAAFP
President, ACPP
Co-Chair Family Practice NPCHCP
