You’re there for your patients, we’re here for you—from training through retirement.
ASA members have a front row seat to all the initiatives we champion on their behalf. Here’s how we’re enhancing the future of the specialty and building stronger physician leaders.
Strengthening leadership skills: We provide programs for physician anesthesiologists to build leadership skills and drive change in health care such as the Leadership Spokesperson Training Program, the Executive Physician Leadership Program, and new for 2019, ASA and the American College of Healthcare Executives training programs. These leaders and future leaders are making a positive impact on the challenges you face.
Lending our voice to legislation and regulations: The ASA Grassroots Network supports initiatives at national and local levels that affect physicians on a variety of matters—from physician-led care teams, to brain health, drug shortages and the opioid crisis; patient safety remains a top priority.
Ensuring appropriate payment: Our physician leaders and staff advocate for fair payment and lessened administrative burden by leading discussions about proposed and final rules from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to ensure that the interests of ASA members and their patients are represented.
Out-of-Network Billing: We are working with several specialty groups to promote legislative solutions on the topic of surprise bills—which are actually “surprise gaps in insurance.” As a result, many states are now vetoing, negotiating, creating study committees and delaying erroneous measures.
