The Affordable Care Act (ACA)
On March 23, 2010, healthcare reform became law when President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). MGMA provides the following resources to help you better understand provisions included in the legislation and navigate the implementation process.
The law includes many policy areas in which MGMA is active. Please visit other pages on our site for further information about issues such as Medicare payment, compliance, ACOs and administrative simplification.
Based on MGMA’s healthcare reform principles and review of comments submitted by MGMA members, and member feedback, the MGMA Board of Directors approved MGMA’s position to not support the final healthcare reform legislation because of its failure to adequately reflect the Association’s healthcare reform principles, and this position was outlined in a Dec. 22, 2009 letter to then Senate majority leader Harry Reid.
