    Descriptive info: How to Lobby.. Speak Out.. Iowa Advocacy Helpful Links.. 2013 Legislative Updates.. 2012 Legislative Updates.. 2011 Legislative Updates.. Contact Your Legislator.. IAFP PrimCare PAC.. Tar Wars.. Advocacy.. 2013 Legislative Priorities.. 1).. Affordable Care Act State Medicaid Expansion.. - We will continue our discussion from our conference call (minutes included in your packet) and determine whether we include our position in the priority list.. 2).. Statewide Medical Education Residency Funding.. - Passed in 1972, this appropriation provided funding to the residency programs through the Regents Institutions.. Overtime the Regents have siphoned these dollars and used them for other expenditures.. The IAFP supports legislation clarifying that these dollars are meant for the residency programs and should be used solely for this initiative.. 3).. Workforce Legislation.. - $1 million appropriation request.. Numerous studies show when family medicine physicians are an integral component of a healthcare system, those systems have higher quality and lower costs than ones without family physicians.. The IAFP is working on matching this state money with private foundation dollars.. 4).. Tort Reform.. - The IAFP supports a Certificate of Merit panel to review medical malpractice lawsuits and believes this panel will decrease the amount of frivolous lawsuits coming before the courts.. If the Legislative make up is  ...   the concept of the health care team that is available to the patient in a patient-centered medical home.. IAFP supports a process that evaluates the appropriateness of changes in the scope of practice of an allied health practitioner based on education, patient safety and health care needs.. i.. Direct Entry Midwives.. - The IAFP does not support the creation of a licensing board for direct entry midwives until the evidence shows these providers meet appropriate standards of care equal to or better than physicians or ARNPs under the supervision of a physician.. ii.. Naturopathic Practitioners.. -The Iowa Academy does not support the creation of a licensing board for naturopathic physicians until the scientific evidence shows those providers meet appropriate standards of care.. iii.. Pharmacist Immunizations-.. IAFP supports the concept of a patient centered medical home.. This continuum of care would be broken if a pharmacist was providing immunizations and not providing this information to the patient s primary care provider.. 6).. Health Insurance/Benefits Exchange (HIX)-.. The Academy supports a state run/administered health benefits exchange.. 7).. Medicaid Reimbursement.. - IAFP will work with the Department of Human Services to prohibit any further cuts in reimbursement rates and will provide guidance as they look for other cost containment measures..

Des Moines University Student Chapter ACOFP.. Resident Council.. Iowa Family Medicine Residency Programs.. 2013 Resident Track.. Rural Iowa Primary Care Loan Repayment Program.. The Problem.. Iowa has a shortage of physicians prepared and willing to practice in rural areas.. In fact, 73 of Iowa s 99 counties need more family physicians..
