Health care is changing rapidly. Every day, policy decisions affecting the practice of medicine and the health of our community are being made in legislative bodies and regulatory agencies at the national, state and local levels. Insurance companies exert influence over the practice of medicine. Physicians must make their voices heard, or their futures will be determined by others.
A Voice for Medicine
The Kansas City Medical Society provides a forum through which physicians can advocate for the future of medicine and the health of our patients across Kansas City. As a member of the Kansas City Medical Society, you are joining with other physicians to help shape the medicine of tomorrow. Organized medicine can make a difference. Don’t sit on the sidelines … be involved in the decision-making process.
A current priority for the Medical Society is advocating for Medicaid expansion in Kansas and Missouri, so the most vulnerable in our community can gain access to needed medical care. At the state level, we work in affiliation with our respective state associations, the Missouri State Medical Association and the Kansas Medical Society. Learn more about advocacy.
