Membership Has Benefits & Value

The 2018 State Legislative session ended with a huge victory for Medicine.

Thanks to the work of the MOA Leadership, Lobbyist and Membership Support together defeated the onerous and far reaching health reform bill that would have enacted:

  • Podiatry Scope Expansion
  • 8.75% Tax on ASCs Revenue
  • Bad Out of Network Formulary with Administrative Burdens,
  • Increase in Licensure Fees,
  • Delineation of a new category of office based surgery centers and more.
