2018 is a very important election year in Florida. What happens in this election will shape the future of Florida politics for several years. The FCEP Political Committees (PC) need your help to ensure we can continue to fight for emergency physician rights and combat detrimental legislation which impedes on the patient-physician relationship.
Our ability to advocate for pro-emergency medicine legislation will heavily impact how we practice medicine in Florida for several years to come. If you’re sick of outside entities dictating how to practice medicine, now is the time to do something about it and have your voice heard.
The truth is, due to the nature of modern U.S. politics, we need money to support a physician-friendly agenda. Did you know that health professionals currently rank 13th in terms of money given for lobbying? We rank behind Big Pharma, the Trial Bar, insurers, hospitals, and even realtors and educators. It is no coincidence that increased physician burn-out and loss of autonomy in recent years has coincided with increased health-lobbying efforts by outside groups. It is only through our advocacy efforts that we will be able to take our profession back.
In Florida, emergency physicians are supported by two FCEP PCs:
Together, they make up the largest and most-influential emergency physician lobby in the state.
Now is the time to re-empower Florida emergency physicians. We will continue to fight for emergency physicians against incursions by insurance companies, the Trial Bar, and other non-physician entities which encroach on patient care and fair compensation.
For just $150, you will become an FCEP-PC member, and take the first steps in laying the ground work for our practice in the next 5-10 years. We cannot stress how important an investment this is towards how we practice emergency medicine in Florida. Please give to the PC today and contribute to the fight for Florida emergency physicians!
