A message from ACEP’s President, Dr. Becky Parker: Please share our video and help it go viral!
Many of you have probably seen the multi-million dollar ad campaign Cigna Insurance is airing using “TV doctors.” ACEP has produced a parody version of that ad starring ACEP members to drive home the message that emergency physicians provide real, life-saving care for their patients – unlike insurance companies. This is another weapon in our ongoing Fair Coverage campaign aimed at the insurance industry and its ever-shrinking reimbursements for emergency care. For more information, visit Check out the video!
