Re: Request for Information about the Health Care Workforce Shortage

Dear Chairman Sanders and Ranking Member Cassidy:

On behalf of our member medical group practices, the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) would like to thank you for the opportunity to provide input on the current health care workforce shortage. We appreciate your attention to this pressing issue as medical groups continue to contend with challenges stemming from workforce shortages. Promoting a strong workforce will allow practices to efficiently function and provide high-quality, cost-effective patient care.

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. MGMA’s members have felt the brunt of workforce shortages, with staffing being one of the biggest challenges facing practices. A Sept. 20, 2022, MGMA poll found 58% of members said staffing is their biggest challenge heading into 2023.
