GoFundMe page to fund the litigation factual and legal investigation and the drafting of proposed complaint against the American Board of Internal Medicine, the ABIM Foundation, their directors, executives, and perhaps others under federal antitrust laws and state consumer fraud and deceptive trade practices acts to bring an end to MOC™ nationwide.
After four years of bring this issue to my readers on this blog, the AMA, and state legislatures, too many questions and conflicts of interest remain about the financial and political shenanigans of these organizations. While the ABIM claims they have "listened," they still have failed to stop the ability of the proprietary ABMS MOC™program from potentially affecting a physicians ability to retain hospital credentials and insurance payments if they don't pay for the program; in other words, their right to work.
Hundred of physicians have been adversely affected by this program already. For every physician who drops out of medicine because of refusal to play along, approximately 2000 patients are affected in turn.
So please give generously. After all it's a "two-for-one" special going forward!
Thanks everyone (and thanks to our special donor(s))!
