Doctors from all over Brazil prepare unified movement to protest the fees paid by health plans. Initially, the action is scheduled for October 18. Until then, however, events must occur regionally, since negotiations with carriers have been carried out separately by state.

On Monday (2), the Brazilian Medical Association (AMA) issued a statement expressing its solidarity to the movement, in partnership with other entities of the national category. In the document, the organization's president, Florentino Cardoso said that the movement has as its ultimate goal the protection of citizens, and urged doctors to fight for their rights.

The relationship of various health insurance companies to doctors reached an untenable point. There are many colleagues closing offices, because they can not keep them. Others leave the system due to interference and pressures to reduce unacceptable exams, anticipate altar hospital, among other problems. We demand recovery and autonomy, since it depends on the proper care for our patients. The AMA urges all physicians to participate in this movement of appreciation of our work. It is an obligation not only to class, but in defense of citizens. The framework of health insurance is complicated in emergencies and in some specialties. The provider network is sufficient in many cases, patients suffer. That has changed, or there will be progressive lack of assistance. "
