Advocacy

  • "...The FMA is responsible for every piece of pro-medicine legislation that advances in the Florida Legislature. When it comes to advocating for the medical profession and your patients, there is no group that is respected more than the FMA. If you are not a member, you should be."

    The FMA is your leading advocate for the medical profession before the Florida Legislature, state agencies and licensing boards, and the judicial branch of government. The FMA is the only statewide organization that represents both allopathic and osteopathic physicians in every medical specialty. Over the years, the FMA has been on the forefront of issues that affect the availability of high quality, affordable health care for all Floridians. The FMA continues to push for legislative and regulatory reforms to improve the delivery of health care and will fight vigorously against any measures that would decrease access to quality health care or harm the citizens of Florida.

    Health care policy issues are numerous, diverse and shaped by all branches of government. No matter the issue or venue, the FMA is a powerful, year-round advocate on behalf of organized medicine. For more information about the FMA's advocacy efforts on behalf of Florida physicians, please contact us at (800) 762-0233.
