Dear Secretary Azar and Administrator Verma,

On behalf of our member medical group practices, the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) urges you to immediately establish a mechanism to disburse direct payments to medical groups who are on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (H.R. 748) provides ample authority and flexibility for the Secretary to make such payments to practices enrolled as  Medicare and Medicaid suppliers.
