President Obama has signed both H.R. 3590, “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” and the reconciliation bill, H.R. 4872, which amends H.R. 3590. MASA has revised the Health Reform Timeline published earlier this year to reflect changes in some of the major provisions in the new health care reform law affecting physicians and patients.

Fix Medicare Now!
My Doctor. My Choice. is a coalition of physicians and patients working together for better health care in Alabama.
Congress is forcing Alabama doctors to limit the number of Medicare patients they can see or worse, quit seeing Medicare patients altogether. Seniors and their physicians are united in the fight to save Medicare, which must be fixed if doctors are to continue seeing Medicare patients and seniors are to continue receiving the kind of high quality care they expect and deserve.
Regardless of whether you’re a physician, a Medicare recipient or even a concerned citizen, sign the petition urging Congress to Fix Medicare Now!
