Resources on the Health Reform Law
Based on our healthcare reform principles, the Association’s previous position on the Senate bill , and review of recent comments submitted by MGMA members, the MGMA Government Affairs Committee (GAC) made a recommendation on the final legislation to the MGMA Board of Directors. The Board confirmed the GAC recommendation to not support final healthcare reform legislation because of its failure to adequately reflect the Association’s healthcare reform principles. The Board approved MGMA position on final reform legislation to Congress.
