Advocacy & Key Issues
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. One of the important values of membership is having your interests represented in Springfield. 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.
