WINNER: Gene Ransom and MedChi

April 27, 2021

The legislative session is over, and The Lobby’s inaugural season is in the books!

Every day this week, we’re highlighting the winners of the 2021 Maryland legislative session.

Gene Ransom, CEO and Executive Director of MedChi (The Maryland State Medical Society) approached the 2021 session with one goal: deliver for MedChi membership on Maryland issues after more than a year with physicians in the national spotlight. Whether that meant a massive increase in physician payment for Medicaid, preservation of payments for telehealth services post-pandemic, or successfully resisting changes in state code that would have lowered the standard for the term “physician,” the MedChi team was relentless in the interest of Maryland physicians.

The Wins:

Massive increase in physician payment for Medicaid

Preserve Telehealth Access Act of 2021

Defend against Podiatry language changes
