ACTION NEEDED NOW!!
Last week the House of Representatives passed the Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017 (H.R. 1215), which now advances to the Senate for consideration. MGMA members are encouraged to access our Contact Congress Portal and urge your senators to support medical liability reform legislation. H.R. 1215 would offer additional protections to physician practices against the threat of frivolous lawsuits by imposing certain limits on medical malpractice litigation, thereby helping to curb insurance premiums and ensure affordable access to healthcare services. The bill is estimated to cut federal spending by $44 billion and reduce the deficit by $50 billion over a decade.
This is a HUGE step that is badly needed!
