What will North Carolina docs do?

As many people have heard the American Medical Association endorsed [1] the health reform bill working its way through three House committees that includes a strong public option.

The North Carolina Medical Society Board of Directors met this weekend to review various proposals floating around Washington, but there is no word yet on whether physicians in our state will take a strong stand.

Language in the latest newsletter published [2] by the group suggests it is skeptical of the House bill. The NCMS has released a collection of bland statements that it calls “guiding principles.” Now is the chance for physicians to push for meaningful reform.

So, docs, what have you decided?
