Physician Advocacy

We Help You Have A Voice!

Join us in fighting for legislation that will help physicians practice medicine without interference from over regulation and protect their patients with decisions made by doctors not politicians.

Health Can't Wait Initiative

Health Can’t Wait is a coalition of patients, health

care providers, and patient-support groups working

together to put Michigan patients first by ending

dangerous delays in patients’ access to health care

caused by insurance company bureaucracy, including

prior authorization red tape and step therapy requirements.

The coalition is being led by more than a dozen patient advocacy and health care organizations, including the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, Susan G. Komen Michigan, the Michigan State Medical Society and many, many more.
