Orthopaedic physicians and practices are under constant siege by policies and proposals that can obstruct or delay access to essential care. These threats are continual and they do not discriminate, impacting every type of practice ranging from large groups to solo practices to academic clinicians. One of the most effective tools that orthopedic physicians have to counter these obstacles is NYSSOS’ OrthoPAC —our political action committee.

The NYSSOS OrthoPAC is vital to our success on numerous critical fronts, not the least of which are reversing onerous prior authorization practices, defeating scope of practice proposals that would diminish patient outcomes, limiting potential future covid-19-related moratoria on elective procedures, and many other pressing issues.

If you haven’t, please take a moment to review NYSSOS’ advocacy agenda (link to a page that enumerates your priorities). To fulfill that agenda, we must support policy makers who understand how legislation and regulation impact our practices and patients.

Contribute to the NYSSOS OrthoPAC today, and as regularly thereafter as possible, to ensure we have the resources necessary to support responsible policy makers and engender sound policy.

The NYSSOS OrthoPAC has been and continues to work on your behalf to achieve goals important to your practice and your patients. We need your contribution to continue. Please scroll down to customize your donation, and to calendar regular donations. We succeed only if we work together.
