RE: [Histonet] A call to action for US AP/Histologyprofessionals

From:"Weems, Joyce"

This is true, but it should be a fair thing. Why should a dermatologist
collect for 10 reimbursements and the pathologist only two of those ten?

One way or another, we must cut spending.  Health care costs are out of
control (16% of our economic output is consumed by health care).  Our
country cannot continue down this path.

Hello Folks--
  There is another issue we should consider a call to paper the Senate
with letters stating our opinions....The AFIP faces closure due to
realignment by base closures (BRAC)--this includes the pathology center
AND the school!!  We've lost so many good schools, and the AFIP is among
the best.  There is a bill to relocate core services of the AFIP to
another center and the link below provides an easy way to write you your
senator in support of this bill: 
  Please take a minute to show your support for our science on MUE
billing (Peggy's email of earlier today),AFIP closure, and two
additional issues threatening continued viability of lab science in this
country.  The form is easy to fill out, and you can forward the link to
several friends once you submit your letter (it will give you another
pop-up for sharing the letter once you click to submit yours) to
increase the impact of our unified voice.  This link will lead you to
both letters and you can send it by email or snail mail: 
  Thank you for your continued interest and support tp maintain
visibility and viability of our craft.  Together we DO make a
