FTC allegations cause rift in AMA house.
The AMA attempted to close ranks on a number of potentially devisive issues at its interim meeting in December. Among the issues disputed were alleged AMA antitrust violations dealing with chiropractors and advertising policies and the association's position on national health insurance. Other medical staff issues put before the delegates included voluntary cost containment, due process, liability insurance requirements, and PSRO data confidentiality.
