TOA in Washington DC

May 30, 2018

Every year, over a dozen Texas orthopaedics go to Washington, DC to participate in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ National Orthopaedic Leadership Council (NOLC) to educate the Texas Congressional Delegation about musculoskeletal issues that affect Texans.

On June 7, 2018, Texas orthopaedic surgeons will discuss two Medicare issues that are specific to Texas – bundled payments (BPCI-Advanced and CJR) and a September 2017 Medicare hospital survey memo that affects some surgical hospitals.

In addition, the orthopaedic surgeons will be discussing three issues that orthopaedic surgeons in other states will be discussing with their Members of Congress: opioids, Good Samaritan liability laws, and regulatory burdens.

More information about issue can be found below.
