Dear DAFP members,

We endorse the enclosed position statements made by the AAFP President.  We advocate for all of our patients and our members and stand by our core principles of non-discrimination.

The AAFP statement on the recent executive order regarding restricted travel based on nationality is located here:  http://www.aafp.org/media-center/releases-statements/all/2017/immigration.html .

We believe that a patients’ access to care and a physicians’ ability to practice may be affected by this order.  We therefore reaffirm the AAFP statement on affordable and accessible health care as articulated here: http://www.aafp.org/media-center/releases-statements/all/2016/letter-to-trump-transition-team.html .

Several other specialty societies such as the American College of Physicians and American Academy of Pediatrics have also issues non-partisan statements in support of health and human rights:

We thank you for your dedication, engagement and service to our diverse communities.

Sincerely,

The DAFP Board

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released the final rule implementing the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). The regulation finalizes all provisions of the law.

The final rule incorporates numerous AAFP recommendations, especially those aimed at assisting solo/small practices.

For additional information, please read this article in AAFP News: http://www.aafp.org/news/macra-ready/20161014MACRAfinalrule.html.

Here is AAFP’s media statement: http://www.aafp.org/media-center/releases-statements/all/2016/MACRA.html.

AAFP staff is continuing work to develop tools and resources that will assist family physicians, and we will share those with you as they become available.
