    AMIC Supports Nomination of Dr. Tom Price as Secretary of HHS

    Washington, D.C. – The Access to Medical Imaging Coalition (AMIC) today sent a letter of support to Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Chairman of the Committee on Finance and Ron Wyden (D-OR), Ranking Member of the Committee on Finance to support the nomination of Dr. Tom Price as the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

    “Representative Tom Price has shown consistent leadership as a physician, Congressman, medical school professor and medical director and he has been a proponent in reducing unnecessary burdens to patients and providers and transforming the nations’ health care system to ensure all Americans not only have access to, but can choose how they receive health care,” said Tim Trysla, executive director of AMIC. “AMIC urges the U.S. Senate to confirm Rep. Price’s appointment and we look forward to working with Rep. Price, HHS, and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to strengthen our health care system by ensuring efficient delivery of appropriate services to all patients.”

    AMIC’s members include more than 35,000 physicians, patient organizations, and medical imaging equipment manufacturers who have long stressed the importance of identifying policies that safeguard patient access to appropriate medical imaging services, and will continue to work with policymakers to realize the goals of efficient, clinically-targeted ordering of diagnostic imaging services.
