Public Policy

By providing independent doctors a collective voice on the national stage, the Association of Independent Doctors (AID) represents doctors in matters they don’t have the time, resources or clout to pursue. AID not only works to keep doctors independent but also to educate consumers, media, insurance providers and lawmakers about why that matters.

5 Reasons You Should Choose an Independent Doctor:

  1. Save money by not paying “facility fees” charged by hospitals.
  2. Better access to care because independent doctors may freely refer to the most cost-efficient qualified specialists and centers.
  3. Independent doctors don’t need to please employers – thus less unnecessary care.
  4. Independent doctors often represent the survival of the fittest and are among the best in their field. They have likely beaten the odds because they are exceptional.
  5. Studies show that doctors who have independent practices are happier and are less likely to suffer from depression and burnout.

AID is a national nonprofit trade association with members in two-thirds of the United States, AID works on behalf of doctors to raise awareness about the negative impact that the growing trend of hospitals buying doctors’ practices has on our nation’s health-care system.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
