Patient & Physician Advocacy Center

ICEP knows emergency physicians in Illinois face a number of critical issues, ranging from dwindling Medicaid reimbursement rates, to rising medical malpractice insurance, to the mental health bed availability crisis.

ICEP has a demonstrated record of accomplishment representing emergency physicians’ interests within the legislative and regulatory arena. In recent years, ICEP has fought vigorously to amend both the balance billing and Medicaid SMART acts to make their implementation more amenable to emergency physicians and our patients.

The Patient & Physician Advocacy Center is your home base for the information, updates and action alerts for all of the issues ICEP takes on to represent you in Springfield.
