Re: MGMA legislative recommendations to support group practices in 2023
Dear Speaker Pelosi and Leaders Schumer, McConnell, and McCarthy:
On behalf of our member medical group practices, the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) writes to encourage you to address significant Medicare payment cuts and other healthcare policies by the end of this year. MGMA is deeply concerned that without congressional action, many group practices will close their doors, impacting access to care across the country.
With a membership of more than 60,000 medical practice administrators, executives, and leaders, MGMA represents more than 15,000 medical groups in which more than 350,000 physicians practice. These groups range from small private practices in rural areas to large regional and national health systems and cover the full spectrum of physician specialties and organizational forms. Our diverse membership uniquely situates MGMA to offer its expertise on how these cuts and policies threaten the group practice model and the patients they treat.
