On March 19, the WMGMA held its first quarterly Payer Forum meeting of 2018 at UW Health in Madison. Attendees of the meeting included payers and WMGMA members. This meeting was the first with a new format that changed to include all payers to meet in-person in the morning session for Q&A, and payers were welcomed to stay for lunch.
Milwaukee's mental health system is in flux. The county is moving forward with overhauling the way it delivers care, with an emphasis on community supports rather than institutions. It's also working with healthcare providers and others to study how to best provide emergency care for patients.
Experts will weigh in on the system's transformation at a Wisconsin Health News panel in Milwaukee on Tuesday, March 13. Panelists:

New Certification Requirements!
The requirements for becoming certified are changing next year. Current requirements that carry over are that you must have two years of healthcare experience and be a MGMA member. As of January 1, 2019, you must also hold a bachelor’s degree or have 120 hours of college credit. Once you apply for certification, you will have THREE years from your application date to become certified.
If you are already certified, or if you become certified by December 31, 2018, you will NOT be required to have the degree or the college credits. If that is your situation, there is still time! First, if you are not already a national MGMA member, you can purchase MGMA membership plus the board certification application (MMBCMPE) in one bundle and SAVE $50! Second, you have four different opportunities to take and pass the exams:
