One of OMA’s highest priorities is representing our members at the State Capitol in Salem and our nation’s Capitol in Washington, DC. The Government Relations Department advocates for OMA members on issues regarding access to health care, health care financing, ensuring an adequate physician workforce, and improving Oregon’s practice climate by achieving sound liability and health care reform. The department generates support for OMA issues by mobilizing physicians, physician assistants, medical school students and other health care partners to act. The department also serves as a resource for OMA members with regards to current public policy issues. Advocacy campaigns and outreach programs are coordinated and directed at state and federal elected representatives, agency officials, and community leaders.
The OMA Government Relations staff continually engages with state and federal legislators, regulators and agencies to advocate for issues that matter most to Oregon physicians and their patients.
