ASA is dedicated to giving our members the education, research and practice tools they need to serve their patients and their profession.

ASA Member Benefit Spotlight: 
Collaborating with Component Societies 

ASA works in tandem with state component societies to provide essential tools, resources and advocacy to support your patients, your practice and your specialty. This collaboration led to several successes in the first half of 2018.

Protected physician-led anesthesia care: ASA worked closely with the New York State Society of Anesthesiologists to successfully maintain physician-led anesthesia care for all New Yorkers. Physician anesthesiologists throughout New York had a tremendous impact on the legislation by lending their voices to the cause.

Protecting patients from surprise insurance gaps: ASA is working with state component societies, non- and for-profit physician organizations across the country to help change the narrative developed by insurance companies concerning out-of-network payment legislation. As a result, states are vetoing, negotiating, creating study committees and delaying these measures. Critical to these successes has been ASA’s relationship development with state component physician leaders, and the ongoing relationship between national and state leaders.

Defending patient and physician interests: In California, ASA worked closely with the California Society of Anesthesiologists to combat legislation that would create a politically appointed commission to set prices for commercial health care without any physician involvement and would use a percentage of Medicare rates as the base amount for health care providers.

These accomplishments are made possible by a strong ASA state component society network—supported through your membership. Together, these organizations will continue to work to overcome challenges and shape a successful future.
