    MGMA statement on 2023 advocacy priorities

    Anders Gilberg
    Senior Vice President, Government Affairs
    Medical Group Management Association
     
    “Following a year where medical groups were challenged by record inflation, staffing shortages, and across the board cost increases, MGMA’s 2023 advocacy priorities promote policies that support the financial solvency of medical practices. Long-term, comprehensive solutions are needed to avoid harmful annual cuts to physician reimbursement. We are calling on the 118th Congress to focus its energy on commonsense legislation to alleviate onerous administrative burdens and improve the timeliness of clinical care delivery by passing important legislation such as the Improving Seniors' Timely Access to Care Act. The Biden Administration can play an important role and build on its progress to refine and finalize proposed rules to implement an electronic prior authorization program and increase plan transparency. MGMA will continue to advocate for clear guidance from the Administration on surprise billing requirements and implementation of the law in a manner that is in line with congressional intent, not creating undue burden, nor interfering with a medical group’s ability to enter into reasonable and balanced contractual negotiations with health plans."
