Who is eligible to participate in the MGMA surveys?

Help your state report reliable data. Check how your state compares.


Private practices, hospitals, integrated delivery systems, universities, academic departments, recruiters, management services organizations, physician practice management companies and government organizations are all eligible to submit a survey.

Different organization types may receive different questions based on the information entered on their participation profile.

Freestanding ambulatory surgery center professionals are only eligible to participate in the Ambulatory Surgery Center benchmarking survey.


All providers employed by the group for the entirety of the most recently completed fiscal year, as well as any new hires during the same fiscal year, are eligible for submission. MGMA does not collect data on providers that left the practice during the fiscal year, or providers that did not work at all during the fiscal year.

Managers and Staff

All managers and staff employed by the practice at any time during the most recently completed fiscal year are eligible for submission. This includes managers and staff that were new hires or left during the fiscal year. Survey participants must indicate the amount of time the manager or staff member was employed in that individual's full-time equivalent (FTE) value.
