ECS physicians are leaders in state and national EM advocacy groups, helping to protect our patients and create a sustainable future for EM providers.  Policy decisions at the state and federal level have profound implications on the practice of EM.  Everything from CMS reimbursement, fair payor practices and patient access to emergency care are affected by decisions made by our elected officials.  ECS supports our providers as they lead the organizations that advocate for EM patients and providers.
