AMA House of Delegates Action Summarized

Posted on

The AMA House of Delegates voted on a number of issues during its recent annual meeting. Among the action taken: 

  • There was agreement on a policy that supports adding naloxone to airline medical kits
  • It voiced its opposition to states that seek to ban patients from the Medicaid and cut off access to services if premium payments are missed or late or work requirements are unfulfilled. “The AMA believes that Medicaid policies should support continuity of care, and Medicaid patients should be permitted to reapply immediately for redetermination if coverage is terminated,” noted AMA in a news release.
