AOA Advocacy Group Webinar: The 2012 Election Results and Your Practice

November 8, 2012

The AOA was recognized this year as being one of the most respected and effective advocacy groups in Washington, D.C. for its legislative and regulatory accomplishments and for outworking groups with an anti-optometry agenda. Click here to learn more about AOA’s recognition as a respected advocacy force.

Now, just days after this year’s historic national elections, AOA members will be able to hear directly from the profession’s experts on how the results will change the national political landscape, alter the nation’s health care policy priorities, and impact optometry practices across the country.

AOA President Ron Hopping, OD, MPH, Advocacy Group chairs, and Washington Office staff will lead a post-election, members-only webinar on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 9 PM EST to discuss how the election results will influence health care policy decisions at the federal level and AOA-backed provisions that have become law over the last four years, including inclusion of ODs in Medicare and Medicaid EHR provider incentives, the new pediatric vision essential health benefit, and the Harkin provider non-discrimination law.

Dr. Hopping will be joined by State Government Relations Chair Bobby Jarrell, O.D.; AOA Federal Relations Chair Roger Jordan, O.D.; AOA Third Party Relations Chair Steve Montaquila, O.D.; and Jon Hymes, Director of the AOA Washington Office.

Space is limited, so AOA members are encouraged to register now for this members-only webinar. For those unable to attend, the webinar will be available for download through the AOA website at a later date. Contact AOA Washington Office Director Jon Hymes at jfhymes@aoa.org or 1-800-365-2219 for more information.
