Medicare Physician Reimbursement

MGMA's Government Affairs department is dedicated to informing its members about the latest developments in Medicare physician reimbursement, a topic which is interconnected with a number of policy areas in which MGMA is active. Please visit other pages on our site for further information about issues such as ACOs, compliance, healthcare reform, and administrative simplification. Also, learn more about the future of Medicare payments on MGMA's dedicated MACRA/QPP page.
