Dr. David Drew, a medical doctor and founder of the National Orthopedics and Traumatic Brain Injury Association, released a new report that shows that the NDAA will likely lead to more and more Americans being left to pay for their own medical bills.
According to the report, which is titled “Drew’s Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Stock Analysis,” the NDPA’s plan to “retain the status quo” by maintaining the current “prohibitive” reimbursement rates of the existing Medicare program is not only un-American but also potentially deadly.
In a letter to senators on Tuesday, Dr. Richard J. Drew, chief medical officer for the National Association of Neurological Surgeons, said that the bill would lead to “a catastrophic loss of access to the best and most effective treatments for the millions of Americans suffering from degenerative conditions.”
Dr. Drew wrote, “The current treatment landscape is set in stone, with the government paying for every one of these procedures, but there is no funding available to provide the patients with the care they need to be able to live independently.”
In his letter, Dr.’s Drew warned that if the NDIA’s plans are passed into law, the government will have “totally missed out on the best medical treatments for many of our patients and families.”
He also warned that the government’s current treatment plans will be detrimental to patients and their families, as “most patients have no idea they are being treated with a dangerous and unnecessary procedure.”
The NDAA passed by a vote of 66-33 in the House on March 21.
It has been signed into law by President Donald Trump and has yet to be signed by a sitting president.
The bill was passed in a secret session of Congress.
According to a press release from the National Center for Health Statistics, the bill has received support from almost half of all members of Congress, including Sens.
Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Richard Blumenthal (D of Connecticut), Kirsten Gillibrand (D -NY), Elizabeth Warren (D from MA), and Ben Cardin (D –MD).
However, there is one notable Republican lawmaker who has expressed concern over the NDRA’s plans, Sens.
Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Cory Gardner (R -CO).
According to The Hill, Sen. Graham, a former surgeon, said in a statement to the outlet that “this is not the American way, and it’s not what America is supposed to be.”
“We are going to have to stop the NDMA from going through the motions,” Graham said.
“The NDMA is taking away the medical care of the American people and I’m not willing to let it happen.
I’ll vote against this bill.”
Gardner has said that he believes that “if you want to treat your patients the way you want them to be treated, you should treat them the way they are supposed to have been treated.
This is not about Medicare, Medicaid, or the like.
This should be about the future of the country, and I support efforts to do that.”
In a statement, the NDHA called on Graham and Gardner to vote against the NDDA.
“We need to stop these dangerous bills before they take effect,” said the group’s president.
