Idaho Medical Political Action Committee (IMPAC)

The Idaho Medical Political Action Committee (IMPAC) is responsible for the IMA's political fundraising and candidate support. IMPAC invites contributions from IMA members and disburses funds to candidates based on their positions on healthcare-related issues.

IMPAC is dedicated to creating a legislative environment that is open and fair when considering the interests of Idaho physicians and their patients. IMPAC committee members and IMA staff gather information, interview and support candidates of both parties during the primary and general elections. IMPAC members review input from physicians and other sources on candidates' backgrounds and their positions on medical issues. Candidates who receive IMPAC support and funding are "friends of medicine" who have established voting records or positions supportive of IMA legislative issues. Special consideration is given to friendly incumbents and members of legislative committees that deal with medical issues.
