    • Intake and organize physician complaints regarding claim payment problems or practices by commercial insurers and public programs that interfere with physician treatment of patients;  
    • Analyze physician complaints and advocate for solutions with insurers and regulators, as well as with both federal and state public payors (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid, Workers Compensation, No-Fault Auto Insurance);
    • Identify trends or common sets of problems faced by physicians and patients that may be subject to solutions through legislative or regulatory action;
    • Interact and coordinate actions with others including: county and specialty medical societies, other state medical associations, the American Medical Association and national specialty medical societies, as well as consumer, hospital, and other organizations;
