Who We Are

The Emergency Department Practice Management Association (EDPMA) is one of the nation’s largest trade associations supporting the delivery of emergency medical care to all Americans. Together, EDPMA’s members deliver (or directly support) health care for over half of the 136.3 million patients who visit U.S. emergency departments each year. Our members include physician groups, billing and coding companies, and others who support health care provided in the Emergency Department and work collectively to deliver services often unmet elsewhere. We provide advocacy and educational resources to Emergency Department physician groups and their practice partners.

Latest Advocacy Activities

On September 6, 2016, EDPMA submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in response to the proposed 2017 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.  A copy of EDPMA's comments are available here.  

On September 2, 2016, EDPMA submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in response to the proposed 2017 update to the Medicare Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS).  A copy of EDPMA's comments are available here.

On August 11, 2016, EDPMA sent an Action Alert to members who practice in the state of California to weigh in about problematic legislation (AB 72) that limits reimbursement for out-of-network care.  Emergency medicine advocates were able to exclude emergency care from the bill. Nevertheless, if the bill were to become law, it would set dangerous precedent that non-contracted healthcare providers can be forced to accept in-network rates.  A copy of EDPMA’s Action Alert is available here.

On June 24, 2016, EDPMA submitted its comment letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in response to its proposed rule implementing the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Model (APM) Incentive Payment.  A copy of EDPMA's comments are available here.
