MSMA is your third party payer advocacy resource.
The Claims Advocacy for Physicians (CAP) Committee meets regularly with Medicaid, Medicare, and other health insurance companies to discuss specific problems that you bring to our attention. Through the CAP Committee, MSMA assists MSMA members who experience difficulties or hassles with the policies and procedures of various health care payers including Medicaid, Medicare, commercial carriers, HMOs, PPOs, UM/QROs, etc. which are of common concern to the physician community.
