Restoring Accountability in Medical Practice by Non-Participation in Government Programs and Understanding the Devastating Force of Government

In private practice a physician is always beholden to his patient. They evaluate him on every office call and treatment rendered. In any government practice, whether Medicare, Medicaid, or VA, the physician must always answer to his superior. If he can’t justify his treatment to the satisfaction of his superior, he may be separated from his position, his income and livelihood causing devastation of the investment in his education by his parents, relatives, and the state causing a huge loss, not only of his position in the community of physicians as well as the community that he lives in, but also in his future viability to earn a living.

  • Association of American Physicians and Surgeons The voice for private physicians since 1943. Join our 75-year tradition of protecting the patient-physician relationship. AAPS is the oldest organization that continues to defend freedom and ethics in medicine.  Plan now to join us at our 75th Annual Meeting, October 3-6, 2018 in Indianapolis. On the legal front, we have participated in several precedent-setting cases. Imagine government agents knocking on your door to demand that you turn over your patients’ medical records—without the consent of patients or a warrant. The Fourth Amendment should prevent this. But at the rate that the government is going, physicians and our patients may end up with fewer rights than detainees at Guantanamo Bay! Another challenge to confidentiality is on the State level. A total of 16 States are quietly building databases of medical record information. As insurance companies consolidate, and as increasing numbers of States become Big Brother through these databases, the foundation is being laid for a “single payer” and government control over all of medical care.
