In 2022, AGA made significant progress on key priorities on behalf of GI – both for patients and clinicians – on Capitol Hill. From completing the colorectal cancer screening continuum to advancing prior authorization reform through the House floor, we achieved critical victories for GI patient care thanks to the work and involvement of AGA members.

But there’s more to be done.

We asked you about the top issues impacting your work in order to help us better focus our advocacy priorities in 2023.

Here are the top three answers based on your responses.

  • Speed up access to care for patients by reforming prior authorization.

  • Fight to make sure doctors make treatment decisions, not insurers.

  • Increase Medicare reimbursement for gastroenterologists.

Our work is just getting started. Here’s how you can get involved:
