About AMAC Action

Who is AMAC Action?

AMAC Action & Grassroots Advocacy: AMAC Action, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit conservative advocacy organization, was created to support AMAC by advancing initiatives on Capitol Hill, in the state legislatures, and at the local level through grassroots advocacy. Participation is a benefit of AMAC membership.

AMAC Action Mission Statement

Along with our Advocates, we will advance AMAC Action’s influence in Washington, D.C. in Congressional Districts, and state Legislatures across the country while acting as a recognized and valued resource for our members, Congress, state leaders, and seniors throughout America.”

AMAC Action Signature Issues:

H.R. 856 – Physician Pro Bono Care Act

  • Allows physicians to increase their Medicaid and CHIP-eligible patient populations by having the option to take a voluntary tax deduction in exchange for treating these patients at no charge
  • The tax deduction is commensurate to the amount of the physician’s normal and customary fees
  • Increases access to medical care by providing an alternative to costly hospital emergency rooms for primary care
  • Reduces federal and state Medicaid and CHIP expenditures

AMAC’s Plan to Preserve and Modernize Social Security

Social Security Guarantee

  • Guarantees an increase in benefits by implementing a tiered approach to cost-of-living adjustments for high earners, middle earners and low earners
  • Guarantees social security solvency by raising the retirement age gradually

Social Security Plus

  • A new way for younger people to save for retirement similar to a Roth IRA
  • Completely voluntary for the employee and employer. This is in addition to regular Social Security benefits

Addressing Drug Costs & Shortages

  • Group purchasing organizations and pharmacy benefit managers are hospital supply and prescription drug supply chain middlemen who charge “rebates” to manufacturers and suppliers for access to their contracts
  • These “rebates” are protected by a statute that makes this business practice legal, but this money negatively affects the cost of hospital supplies and in particular, the list cost of outpatient prescription drugs
  • AMAC is working with a coalition of physician and patient advocates to remove the middleman money from the hospital and prescription drug supply chains
  • Removal of this middleman money will drive down costs by many millions of dollars and open both the hospital and prescription drug supply chains to free-market competition and innovation
