Oklahoma Governor Signs Anti MOC/OCC Legislation!

IP4PI - Independent Physicians for Patient independence

An Oklahoma physician writes in:

Yesterday, April 11, 2016 our Governor signed a bill preventing entities from using MOC or OCC as a condition for licensure, reimbursement, employment or admitting privileges at a hospital.

This is HUGE!!! We essentially blocked ABMS and AOA lobbying efforts and hopefully blocked the Interstate Compact law (which we successfully squashed for this year’s legislative efforts).

This may be a model to squash MOC and OCC forever.

Note: This victory follows Kentucky’s anti-MOC, bill SB 17, passed earlier this year.
