Legislative Agenda

Improving Access to Needed Care through supporting:

  • Policies that improve healthcare outcomes for Georgians, including sustainable funding for a statewide trauma network and increasing fees on tobacco products.
  • The continuation of tax exemptions that allow Not-for-Profit community hospitals to provide essential but unprofitable services, such as emergency care, trauma, neonatal intensive care, and training new physicians.
  • Improved reimbursement levels for all Medicaid providers, including supplemental payments for uncompensated care and opposing programs that diminish payments to the providers of medical care, either by reduced rates or by diverting funds to third parties, such as care management organizations.
