    AMIC Letter Supporting Nomination of Dr. Tom Price as Secretary of HHS

    Dear Chairman Hatch and Ranking Member Wyden

    On behalf of its more than 35,000 physicians, patient organizations, and medical imaging equipment manufacturing members, the Access to Medical Imaging Coalition (AMIC) is writing to support the nomination of Dr. Tom Price as the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

    As a physician, Congressman, medical school professor, and medical director, Rep. Price is highly qualified to serve as HHS Secretary. Rep. Price has firsthand experience of the challenges faced by clinicians and health care service providers. He has long been a proponent of reducing unnecessary burdens and transforming the nation’s health care system to ensure all Americans not only have access to, but can choose how they receive health care. As a Congressman, Rep. Price has introduced and supported legislation to allow for greater patient flexibility and choice while also protecting providers and ensuring they are able to deliver care efficiently. AMIC firmly believes in the importance of ensuring access to the appropriate services and we are confident Rep. Price will successfully lead the transformation to ensure efficient delivery of appropriate services. We look forward to working with Rep. Price, HHS, and CMS to strengthen our health care system.

    Rep. Price has consistently shown strong leadership and has offered cogent solutions to the myriad problems that providers face in delivering high-quality care. We believe Rep. Price will continue to demonstrate his exceptional leadership and will leverage his diverse background and experiences to successfully lead HHS. AMIC strongly supports Rep. Price’s nomination and we urge the U.S. Senate to confirm his appointment.

    Sincerely,

    Timothy P. Trysla

    Executive Director, AMIC
