American Medical Association president-elect Andrew Gurman, MD, recently published an opinion piece on the In-Office Ancillary Services Exemption in The Hill.

Dr. Gurman expressed his support for the IOASE and its role in supporting cost-effective care delivered outside of the hospital environment.

The Digestive Health Physicians Association released a statement supporting Dr. Gurman's stance.

The AMA conducted a study through independent contractor Milliman to determine if utilization of ancillary services within a physician practice leads to higher overall healthcare costs. The study found "self-referrals" do not increase Medicare spending or encourage over-utilization of services.
