Federal Legislative Agenda

At the federal level, PBCMS and American Medical Association (AMA) work together on advocacy and legislative issues.

The AMA advocates for physicians before Congress and the Administration. The organization often works with members of the house of medicine and other health organizations to develop positions, messages, and strategies on issues of shared concern.
