With the 2016 Election Around the Corner, Make Sure Your Voice Can Be Heard in Springfield
Posted on: 9/28/2016


The Nov. 8, 2016, General Election is about a month away!

With all 118 State House and 40 State Senate seats up for election and many key issues still on the table, it’s more important than ever for physicians to support the Illinois State Medical Society Political Action Committee (IMPAC).

Decisions will soon be made on a wide range of issues, including a plaintiffs’ bar initiative to remove the confidentiality of hospital peer review meetings, workers’ compensation reform, attempts by other allied health care professionals to dangerously expand their scope of practice, and establishing network adequacy and transparency standards for health insurance companies.

IMPAC has dedicated substantial financial support to physician-friendly candidates throughout the state and gives 100 percent of your contributions to candidates who advocate for you.

Let your voice be heard in Springfield by joining IMPAC today!
