    MGMA statement on the GOLD CARD Act of 2023
    Anders Gilberg
    Senior Vice President, Government Affairs
    Medical Group Management Association


    "Year after year, medical practices identify prior authorization requirements as the most challenging and burdensome obstacle to delivering high-quality patient care. A critical step towards much-needed reform, MGMA supports the GOLD CARD Act of 2023, which would exempt providers from prior authorization requirements for certain services if 90% of their requests were previously approved, thereby allowing physician practices to focus resources on patient care. Medical groups report that only 7% of the Medicare Advantage plans they contract with offer gold-carding programs. By passing this commonsense legislation, Congress can ensure continuity of care and ultimately put physicians back in the driver’s seat of their patients’ treatment plans.”
