AMA delays premium-support debate
Modern Healthcare

A report recommending that the American Medical Association back the transition of Medicare toward a premium support system has been withdrawn before it can be voted on at the upcoming AMA House of Delegates meeting June 16-20 in Chicago.

The report was prepared by the AMA Council on Medical Service, which serves as an AMA advisory panel on socio-economic issues, but it has been taken off the agenda.
