Based on MGMA’s healthcare reform principles, the Association’s position on the Senate bill, and review of comments submitted by MGMA members, the MGMA Government Affairs Committee made a recommendation on the final healthcare reform legislation to the MGMA Board of Directors, which the Board confirmed. The Board approved MGMA’s position to not support the final healthcare reform legislation because of its failure to adequately reflect the Association’s healthcare reform principles, and this position was outlined in a Dec. 22, 2009 letter to then Senate majority leader Harry Reid.
