AMERICAN ACADEMY OF FAMILY PHYSICIANS APPLAUDS PRESIDENT CLINTON'S ANNOUNCEMENT OF HEALTH CARE PLAN

 KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) supports the principles and many of the strategies espoused in the Administration's health reform proposal. The draft plan provides a positive framework for considering the many complex issues entailed in health system reform.
 The AAFP is the national medical specialty association representing 75,000 family physicians, family practice residents and medical students. It was the first medical association to propose a health reform plan in 1989. In 1992 it released its "Rx for Health: The Family Physicians' Access Plan," calling for universal access to a comprehensive benefits package, physician specialty redistribution, insurance reform and cost containment under the discipline of a global budget.
 The Academy, with the President's announcement, will work vigorously with Congress and the White House to assure that meaningful health reform is enacted during the 103rd Congress.
