Supporting Nebraska Physicians . . .

Lobbying
NMA advocates for Nebraska physicians and patients at the state and national level. NMA meets with state and national elected officials on a regular basis to educate and discuss issues affecting medicine as well as the impact different legislation will have on patients and physicians in Nebraska.

Nebraska Hospital Medical Liability Act
Nebraska is a more desirable state to practice medicine because of our malpractice cap. This is due to the efforts of the NMA Professional Liability Committee that continues to work with the Legislature, Nebraska Patient Safety Coalition, as well as, malpractice carriers to maintain and protect the cap ensuring the overall safety and protection of Nebraskans.

Nebraska Medical Foundation
The NMA Foundation awards approximately $50,000 in scholarships to Nebraska medical students annually.

Nebraska Medical Political Action Committee
Our PAC meets routinely throughout the year to identify and support candidates and legislators who understand and are supportive of Nebraska physician and patient issues.

Payor Related Issues
NMA represents the interest of physicians on important topics that include: behavioral health, health care reform, insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, professional liability, public health, rural health, workers’ compensation and many more.

Numerous NMA committees focus on keeping close connections between the medical community and insurers. Members are represented on the Medical Assistance Advisory Committee that meets regularly with the Director of Medicaid and CMS to discuss issues and changes within programs such as: WPS, Medicare’s Carrier Advisory Council that helps influence Local Coverage Determinations; and WPS’s Provider Outreach and Education Advisory Group to discuss administrative concerns and provider education regarding claims and payments.

State Senator Meetings
The NMA stays in contact with state senators keeping them informed on legislation important to medicine and patient safety. There are several opportunities throughout the year for members to meet with state senators and discuss upcoming legislation and concerns as well as testify before legislative committees.

Our Legislative Advocacy Breakfast is held annually at the Capitol the beginning of the year providing you the opportunity to meet with senators early in the session. Candidate forums occur in election years providing individuals running for state Legislature an opportunity to introduce themselves to representatives of the medical community. We encourage you to meet with senators individually and have talking points available. To keep you informed during the session, legislative updates and bill tracking reports are emailed on a weekly basis via our NMA STAT newsletter.

ADVOCATING FOR YOUR PATIENTS

Concussion Coalition
The NMA is actively involved with the Nebraska Concussion Coalition that is taking the lead in implementing steps to improve awareness and change concussion management at play, school, and home. Educational learning modules have been developed and are available to all healthcare providers.

Patient Safety
LB 25, which provides for a patient safety fee to fund the Nebraska Coalition for Patient Safety (NCPS), has passed Select File in the 2019 Legislature. LB 25 increases physicians’ licensure fees by $50 biennially and physician assistants’ licensure fees by $20 biennially to fund the NCPS with a goal to reduce medical errors.

Motorcycle Helmet Law
The NMA remains steadfast in the fight against the repeal of the state’s motorcycle helmet law which is repeatedly brought before the Legislature. This session, LB368 was introduced to repeal the helmet law. The NMA continues to be instrumental in the oppositional debate, working with the helmet coalition and partners. 

Seat Belt & Child Restraint Use
The NMA advocates for strong laws on seat belt and child restraint use because we know these safety measures save lives. The NMA supports several bills this year including LB 620 which would make texting while driving a primary offense, and LB 39 which would move seat belt violations from a secondary to a primary offense.
