Welcome to the Georgia College of Emergency Physicians

Welcome to the website of the Georgia College of Emergency Physicians, the organization that represents all emergency physicians and our patients in the great state of Georgia.

You know the challenges we face – access to care, fair payment, balance billing, and medical liability reform. Join more than 900 emergency physicians in Georgia who make the investment each year to move us forward.

ACEP and GCEP exist for two reasons:
  1. To provide resources that make your life easier
  2. To battle on your behalf in Washington, DC and Atlanta
What have we done lately on your behalf? Quite a lot.
  • Continued progress on balance billing and moved the ball down the field toward a good solution. Continued growth of our rural EM conference for our state.
  • Advocacy on Surprise Billing: August is a critical time to advocate for EM before Congress makes a decision in the surprise billing debate. We have updated our member advocacy toolkit to help you contact your federal legislators and their staff while they’re at home for the recess period.
  • Proposed Fee Schedule: CMS recently released its proposed 2020 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, and it’s impactful for EM physicians because it includes proposals that affect Medicare physician payments. Read ACEP's summary of the EM-specific highlights
  • Free POC App Released: ACEP Members get five bedside tools in one app: AFIB (atrial fibrillation & flutter), BUPE (Buprenorphine use in the ED), ADEPT (agitation in the elderly), MAP (management of acute pain) and iCar2e (suicide assessment). Learn More
