On May 8, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed a bill into law that will prevent the state’s Medical Practice Act from being used to require Maintenance of Certification (MOC) as a condition of licensure or to require MOC to be employed by a state medical facility or for the purposes of licensure, insurance panels, or malpractice insurance.

H.B. 165 was one of MAG’s priorities for the 2017 state legislative session.
