With federal lawmakers actively working on legislation to address the surprise billing/out-of-network payment issue that is expected to move in the Senate by June, ACEP member advocacy at the 2019 Leadership and Advocacy Conference could be hugely consequential for the future of emergency medicine. Visits to the Hill to advocate on critical issues like this do make a difference.

In addition to making these critical Hill visits, LAC attendees will hear from policymakers and experts about the latest developments on public policy issues that directly impact their practice. The conference will also include an afternoon dedicated to effective chapter leadership and a solutions forum highlighting innovative approaches to reduce boarding of psychiatric patients and successful uses of telemedicine. Two post conference events are also available: MAT Waiver Training and an Acute Pain Management Bootcamp.
