MAG is the leading voice for physicians in Georgia
MAG is the leading voice for physicians in Georgia. That means making sure that physicians are free to care for their patients as they see fit. That means ensuring that the practice environment is favorable enough to ensure that there are enough physicians to care for patients in the state. That means protecting the patient-physician relationship. And that means preserving the best medical care in the world.MAG was the driving force behind the prompt pay bill that passed in 2011. MAG is the go-to advocate when it comes to tort reform or health insurance reform or opposing new taxes or pay cuts for physicians. And whether it’s Medicaid pay or unfair recoupment efforts, MAG is the greatest ally that physicians in Georgia have when it comes to contending with third party payers.
