One of MSMA’s foremost functions is to advocate on behalf of our physicians and their patients. We are the only association in Mississippi that advocates for physicians. Our advocacy efforts extend to both the U.S. and Mississippi State Capitol, to the courtroom and on the front lines for public health. MSMA’s professional, experienced legal team is available to answer questions and assist you in the areas of regulation and policy changes related to your practice and health system reform. The practice of medicine and patient rights are under attack from every angle through government intrusion, lawsuit abuse, over-regulation of insurance companies and other third parties. MSMA is a powerful advocate on legislative issues including tort reform, liability insurance, Medicaid, scope of practice, contracting, and public health and safety issues.
