Membership in the Northeast Florida MGMA has adopted many goals to assist in managing a productive medical practice. Our goals are to support the national MGMA and local affiliated chapters. In doing this. Northeast Florida MGMA strives to be a primary resource on current issues with monthly luncheon meetings in which knowledgeable speakers come to share ideas and information.
Northeast Florida MGMA provides a local networking arena for small, mid-sized, and large medical practices.
