Government Advocacy

Engage with a team that advocates on your behalf and translates complex regulations into focused updates on the latest health issues from Washington.

How the Government Affairs team can help you

Your voice in Washington

MGMA advocates for priority issues affecting medical groups, promotes awareness of the business of medicine, and assists members in meeting the challenges posed by today’s rapidly evolving healthcare environment. Members' interests are represented before many audiences, including Congress, federal agencies and healthcare coalitions.


Members have the opportunity to interact directly with the MGMA Government Affairs staff who have broad expertise in the details of federal legislative and regulatory issues and their effect on group practices.

Perhaps you’ve read about a federal healthcare policy issue in the news and you’re curious as to how it will affect your practice. Our Government Affairs team is happy to walk you through what it means and point you to the correct resources. Contact us at 202-293-3450 or
