Please pick the appropriate category below:

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons was started in 1943 to work toward the goal of the unfettered doctor-patient relationship with the least government and insurance company instrusion.  NJAAPS was started in 2011 in response to the rapid decline of the independence of physicians in New Jersey, the rise of expensive government programs with the decline in actual access of health care for the poor.
Core values:
  • We believe in access to medical care for all people, rich and poor.
  • We believe that the Medicaid program is too bureaucratic and wasteful and that it ought not be an "entitlement," something one earns because he or she fails economically or is too sick to work. Instead, we believe that true charity is care that one cannot afford, but that kind physicians, nurses and other volunteers are willing to provide with no compensation.
  • We believe that physicians who volunteer four hours per week in free non-government clinics ought to be rewarded by the state giving free medical malpractice coverage for their entire practices.
  • We believe that this plan will strengthen communities, give retirees a venue to provide a significant service to those who fall in to hard times, and will reduce taxes by greatly reducing funding for the failed Medicaid program.
  • We believe that these lower taxes are the key to prosperity in NJ.
