Welcome to UROPAC!

Urology's Advocate on Capitol Hill

UROPAC Legislative Priorities

  • Support Transparency and Accountability for the USPSTF. U.S. urologists urge Congress to support legislation that promotes greater transparency and accountability from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). We urge representatives to cosponsor the "USPSTF Transparency and Accountability Act" (H.R. 539)

  • Repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board. Repealing the IPAB ensures seniors and their doctors maintain control over treatment and other healthcare decisions.Preserve the use of the in-office ancillary services exception (IOASE) to the Stark Law when appropriate.

  • Proper Implementation of MACRA. Monitor and revise the Quality Payment Program to ensure MACRA is implemented fairly and in a way that will not hinder the ability of physicians to care for their patients.
