  2. From site neutral payments to the SGR fix to CMS’s recent payment rules, LUGPA’s contribution to health policy is unmatched in urology.
  3. The site neutral payments provision in the budget act is a big deal and greatly levels the playing field between independent medicine and large health systems.
  4. “Creative thinking can come from inside the box and can be learned.” – Drew Boyd
  5. Charles Krauthammer: The politics of Obamacare resonates deeply with Republicans and Democrats five years after becoming law.
