How the National Managed Care Contract helps physician advocates

The National Managed Care Contract (NMCC) database is a valuable tool for physicians advocates, which allows them to:

  • research existing state managed care legislation and regulations from around the country 
  • stay abreast of emerging state and federal legislation and regulatory trends 
  • support legislative and regulatory managed care reform efforts 
  • develop language and principles for managed care regulation 
  • ensure managed care organizations’ contracts and business practices comply with state laws and regulations  
  • conduct advanced legal research and support litigation against inappropriate practices of managed care organizations
  • access issue briefs that discuss key managed care contracting issues for physicians, such as medical necessity, contract termination and overpayment recovery efforts 
  • research AMA policy on specific managed care issues
