Re: MGMA written comments – House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee hearing on “Charting the Path Forward for Telehealth”

Dear Chair Doggett and Ranking Member Nunes:

On behalf of our member medical group practices, the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) would like to thank the Subcommittee for holding this important hearing on “Charting the Path Forward for Telehealth” and we appreciate the opportunity to provide the physician practice perspective on this topic. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, MGMA members have embraced the telehealth flexibilities to safely care for their patients. In late March 2020, 97% of MGMA members reported that their practices expanded telehealth access amid COVID-19.1 MGMA supports congressional efforts to ensure that Medicare beneficiaries have greater access to telehealth services, but would like any future legislation to take into account the importance of the patient-physician relationship.
