Annual Meeting Flyer

  Lavern’s Law was signed and passed into law by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Wednesday.

This is a law that will negatively impact our healthcare system, from its costs, to physician access, to quality of care.  The effects of this law now need to be mitigated.

Overall reform is required.

Physicians can not endure this strangle that pushes them out of practice, out of state, and prevents new physicians from joining the profession.

We need, all physicians to stand with the Medical Society in taking back the leadership role for the profession. It should not be political. It needs to be for the good health of the people.

Lavern’s Law erodes the foundations of a strong healthcare system for everyone, under the popularity of being able to sue the doctor.


Physician Advocacy day is on March 7th.

We are going up to Albany to speak directly with Legislators.


Tell them what you think.

Join your colleagues from all around New York State to speak with
to ensure they’re making the right choices for you and your patients! 

Join us to urge your legislators to:

  • Reduce excessive health insurer prior authorization hassles that needlessly delay patient care
  • Reduce the high cost of medical liability insurance
  • Preserve choice of physician for our patients
  • Reject burdensome mandates that interfere with patient care delivery
  • Preserve opportunities for our medical students and residents to become New York’s future health care leaders 

Following a morning program, you will have a chance to hear from—
and— more importantly—question New York’s legislative leaders, followed by an informal luncheon where Assembly members and Senators are invited to join their constituents.
