  • Hundreds of thousands of Illinois residents who have purchased health insurance plans on the individual market, or enrolled in network plans by other means, are now facing "narrow" or "tiered" networks. These networks only include a limited number of health care professionals and facilities. The Illinois State Medical Society is working in to enact consumer protections in Illinois with the Network Adequacy and Transparency Act (House Bill 311 and Senate Bill 70). The legislation would require health insurers to develop networks that meet the needs of patients for plans sold in Illinois and maintain up-to-date directories of 'in-network" health professionals and facilities.

  • As a family physician, Dr. Hanak has a lot of reminders built into his workflow. His EMR system prompts him to perform all kinds of screenings on patients – breast cancer, colon cancer and hypertension, to name a few – but nowhere is he prompted to screen his patients for Hepatitis C.

    "Hepatitis C screening isn't on the radar yet for quality reporting programs, but it is the right thing to do, so I make sure that I screen my patients consistent with the practice guidelines. The truth is, we will be saving patients from suffering while saving our health system money in the long run by avoiding more costly treatments associated with full-blown liver disease," says Dr. Hanak.

Our Foundation

Providing Student Scholarships

Fifty years ago the DuPage County Medical Society led efforts to immunize our community against Polio – protecting thousands while prompting the creation of the DuPage Medical Society Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As our Foundation celebrates its Golden Anniversary, the $365,000 it has awarded in scholarships to area students in medicine and allied health professions remains tangible evidence of DCMS support for quality healthcare in our community, now and into the future.

  • October 11, DCMS 2017 Annual Meeting

    October 11, DCMS 2017 Annual Meeting

    Wheaton internist Scott J. Kolbaba, MD, will draw from his new book, Physicians' Untold Stories, to present "Is There Still Room for Spirituality in Medicine?" during the 2017 DCMS Annual Meeting on Wednesday, October 11, at Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton. Doctor Kolbaba interviewed 200 physician colleagues to identify the 26 miraculous experiences chronicled in the book, including dreams foretelling future events, apparitions, and other awe-inspiring occurrences. Together the stories demonstrate that miracles - things that physicians cannot begin to explain scientifically - do occur everyday and sometimes all we need to do is believe. Register today for this extraordinary event on October 11, 2017.
