PRACTICING IN CONNECTICUT
COMS works hard to support you in your practice. We advocate for you on a state level, and work in conjunction with the American Osteopathic Association to promote osteopathic medicine on a federal level. Earlier this year, COMS and the AOA collaborated on a letter supporting HB5045, a bill that would require any health care provider who provides direct patient care, in a health care facility, to wear in plain view a photographic identification badge that includes the name of the health care provider and the type of license, certificate or employment title that the health care provider holds within the facility or institution.
We encourage you to read our latest legislative update to learn about current issues of importance in Connecticut.
