This event will provide an educational opportunity for the clinical, administrative and business/operations departments of provider groups. Major Minnesota payers will provide updates on their programs and products, medical and payment policies and claims filing tips. MMGMA, with nearly 600 members, is the oldest and largest state affiliate of the national organization, Medical Group Management Association. The Association includes supervisors, managers, administrators, physicians in administration and other top group practice management. These individuals represent hundreds of medical groups from Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin ranging in size from 2 to 500+ physicians.


The Payer Relations Committee (PRC) would like to know about any payer issues your clinics may be experiencing so that they can be addressed at Day with the Payers. Please contact Jim Reimann at with these concerns. We do need information by Monday, April 15 so that PRC can contact the payers and they can be prepared to discuss them at the conference.
