ADVOCACY 

As physicians, our focus and commitment is ensuring our patients receive the highest quality of care they can receive. Achieving that level of care leaves little time to fight the battles that face the health care profession, which include legislation, regulation, technology, data and an assortment of other issues.

- We improve patient care through legislative advocacy
- We build relationships with key offices and policy makers
- We monitor and comment on proposed rule changes
- We operate the MTMedPAC Political Action Committee
- We carry the message of the physicians at the Capitol

The stronger our membership, the great our reach.  When policymakers don't fully understand how their decisions affect our practices and our patients,  The Association takes notice and unites to form or prevent legislation.
Our Legislative Committee is comprised of physicians from all areas of Montana and various medical specilities. Guided by our MMA Lobbyists, our Legislitive Committee is active during each legislative session and throughout the interim.  We lobby on over 100 bills every session, comment on proposed rule amendments, educate healthcare providers on legislative impact and communicate with our local legislators, press and membership.
