    MGMA statement on the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act (H.R. 2474)

    Anders Gilberg
    Senior Vice President, Government Affairs
    Medical Group Management Association

     “MGMA strongly supports the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act (H.R. 2474) — legislation which would provide a positive payment update for physicians based on the full Medicare Economic Index (MEI) on an annual basis. Medical practices are in no way immune to record inflation, staffing shortages, and across the board cost increases. This legislation would allow Medicare to more accurately reflect the impact of the broader economy on practices’ financial stability. We appreciate Representatives Ruiz, Bera, Bucshon, and Miller-Meeks for the introduction of this bill that, if passed, will ensure continued access to care for vulnerable Medicare beneficiaries nationwide.”
