The Physicians and Staff of Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists thank you for letting your state senators and assemblymen know that you supported Senate Bill 266 to reform COPN. Although the bill died at the State Assembly meeting on Tuesday, Feb 19, 2018, the progress the bill made up until that point was very encouraging.
We hope we can again count on you next year to help get COPN Reform passed in the State Senate and the Virginia Assembly. State Senate Bill 266 would have allowed private health care groups like AOS to invest in their own MRI machines and Ambulatory Surgery Centers, and by doing so offer their patients more convenient testing at a fraction of current costs.
Thank you again for your support. AOS will continue efforts to bring this needed healthcare reform and look forward to joining efforts again.
