NASHVILLE (AP) — Doctors from across Tennessee will visit the state Capitol on March 3.

The Tennessee Medical Association is the state's largest professional group for physicians with more than 8,000 members statewide.

The group recently announced its top priorities for this year's legislative session ahead of its annual day on the Hill.

Atop the list is a bill that would reduce health insurance companies' ability to arbitrarily change reimbursement terms in the middle of a contract.

TMA gained traction with its Payer Accountability bill in 2014 and has continued discussions with insurance companies during the past several months to try to reach a compromise.

According to TMA, the measure will be the first law of its kind in the U.S. if the group is successful this session.
