AMA continues to advocate for increased access to healthcare.

Dr. Andrea Gurman, president of the American Medical Association, says that policy makers have the opportunity to reduce physician burdens, allowing them more time to spend with patients while lowering costs.
But this shouldn’t cause anyone to lose their coverage, he says.
In spite of flaws with the Affordable Care Act, the AMA as well as several large insurers support many provisions of the law, including the mandate that all individuals attain health insurance.
Over 20 million people who had no coverage before were able to attain coverage after the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Repealing it would vanquish coverage for those citizens, something the AMA fears.
