Physicians Must Get Involved in Health Care Reform

In Video, Former President of American Medical Association Makes Call to Action

Napa, California—February 12, 2013—The Doctors Company, the nation’s largest medical malpractice insurer, announced today its latest video, “Physician Involvement in Health Care Reform,” featuring Donald J. Palmisano, MD, JD, FACS, member of the Board of Governors of The Doctors Company and former president of the American Medical Association.

In the video, Dr. Palmisano challenges physicians to get involved in government decisions on health care. As the government considers new health care laws, he says, doctors must offer legislators their specific medical knowledge in order to ensure patient safety and protect the trusted patient-physician relationship.

“The Doctors Company was founded by physicians who came together to pass historic legislation on behalf of doctors in crisis,” said Stacy Schultz, vice president of marketing for The Doctors Company. “We believe in the importance of physicians’ involvement in the legislative process to bring about change.”
