MSSNYPAC: The Political Voice of New York State Physicians
MSSNYPAC members are a force for change in healthcare policy.

MSSNYPAC supports the policy initiatives that MSSNY members have prioritized through the MSSNY House of Delegates, the MSSNY Council and MSSNY’s various committees. A contribution to MSSNYPAC enables physicians to directly interact with policymakers on a personal level while providing crucial campaign support. Working together with grassroots activities like letter-writing, social media interactions, and in-district visits, collective political action by physicians is a powerful mechanism to voice the concerns of physicians and their patients.

The strength of MSSNYPAC and its effectiveness requires NY’s physicians to be “all-in” when it comes to safeguarding the profession of medicine, assuring patients can access needed care, and investing in the present and future viability of medical practices. With well-funded, often-opposing interest groups—including trial lawyers and insurance companies—seeking to expand liability and exert increasing control over clinical decision-making, physicians cannot afford to give up their seat at the discussion table.

MSSNYPAC increases your impact on healthcare policy formation. Join or renew your MSSNYPAC membership today:
