The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) commends the Senate Finance Committee for convening this hearing on “Medicare Physician Payment Reform After Two Years: Examining MACRA Implementation and the Road Ahead.” MGMA is the premier association for professionals who lead medical practices. Since 1926, through data, people, insights, and advocacy, MGMA empowers medical group practices to innovate and create meaningful change in healthcare. With a membership of more than 45,000 medical practice administrators, executives, and leaders, MGMA represents more than 12,500 practices of all sizes, types, structures, and specialties that deliver almost half of the healthcare in the United States. 
 
Through repealing the problematic sustainable growth rate and retiring an overly complex and duplicative hodgepodge of quality reporting programs, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) charted a value-based trajectory for the Medicare payment system by valuing innovative, patient-centric, and efficient care delivery over check-the-box bureaucracy.  
 
We appreciate this Committee’s oversight efforts to ensure successful implementation of MACRA’s sweeping payment reforms. We also applaud Congress for making technical corrections to MACRA through the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, another example of its continued support for the innovative care delivery improvements taking place in physician group practices across the country.
