MGMA offered recommendations to reduce unnecessary government regulations at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) “Cut the Red Tape” Summit this week. During their opening remarks, HHS Acting Secretary, Dr. Don Wright, CMS Administrator, Seema Verma, and other HHS officials reiterated the Department’s commitment to reducing excessive regulatory burdens on medical group practices. During the panel discussion, Anders Gilberg, MGMA’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, shared results from MGMA’s 2017 Regulatory Burdens survey that highlighted the considerable time and resources required to comply with federal mandates and identified key areas of concern for medical group practices, such as the lack of clinical relevance in Medicare’s Quality Payment Program. MGMA will continue to call on HHS to support innovative, high-quality, and cost-effective care delivery untethered from excessive, one-size-fits-all regulations.
