Advocacy Statement

May 23, 2018: Statement by MGMA’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Anders Gilberg on passage of the VA Maintaining Internal Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks (VA MISSION) Act of 2018:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – “With passage of the bipartisan, bicameral VA MISSION Act of 2018, Congress made notable improvements to the VA Choice Program that will assist medical group practices in meeting the growing health care needs of our military veterans. The bill aims to lessen the administrative burden on practices that care for veterans outside the traditional VA system. It addresses barriers to care and ensures physicians receive timely payments from the VA so they may continue to provide high-quality care to our nation’s deserving veterans.”
