2019 Day at the Capitol

Raise Your Voice

Thanks to all of the physicians and physicians-in-training who attended our Day at the Capitol. It was a huge success!
2019 Legislative Priorities:
  • Preserving MinnesotaCare and Medical Assistance coverage by adopting a claims expenditure assessment as an on-going, stable funding mechanism for the expiring, outdated provider tax.
  • Ensuring continuation of drug therapy for patients with chronic medication needs by limiting the ability of health plans or pharmacy benefit managers to restrict access to drugs once a patient begins a therapy.
  • Supporting legislation that ensures prescribers receive real-time notifications on formulary changes and alternative covered drugs.
  • Supporting funding to address the opioid crisis, including funds to ensure Prescription Monitoring Program access through the EHR and to address addiction treatment, prevention, and education.
  • Supporting changes to the Minnesota Health Records Act to align with federal HIPAA laws to improve efforts to better coordinate patient care and reduce duplication of services.
