Mission

The Pediatric council is a forum to meet with health insurence company representatives to discuss pediatric practice issues involving access to care, quality of care, costs and methods of doing business, and physican payment. This is a collaborative effort to discuss ideas and to resolve conflicts, large or small, between pediatrics and insurance companies.

Goals

To establish a better system of communication between the general membership of the Chapter and the members of the Pediatric Council so that the council knows what the members concerns are and the members receive regular feedback after council meetings.
