California Medical Association (CMA) President David H. Aizuss, M.D., issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s new executive order on “Protecting and Improving Medicare for our Nation’s Seniors”:

“Since Day One, this administration has worked to undermine access to care and quality of care for patients. The president’s latest Executive Order suggests changes regarding scope of practice that would also have disastrous effects for patients. We must ensure that every American, regardless of age or economic status, has access to a trained physician who can provide the highest level of care. We agree that medical professionals should be able to practice at the top of their license but care must be supervised by a physician who is highly trained and ultimately responsible. Expanding access to care should not come at the expense of patient safety and we will not support unequal standards of care for patients from different economic backgrounds.”
