AMA Says New Payment Model Rightly Focusing on Care

Statement attributed to Dr. Steven J. Stack, M.D., president of the American Medical Association.

“At first glance, this new payment model initiative includes several advances over the current primary care model, particularly because it emphasizes improvements in care that are achievable by primary care physicians instead of cost reductions that are beyond their control.

“We look forward to reviewing the proposal in detail and working constructively with CMS to ensure physicians have flexible and workable payment models that support high-quality patient care and put less administrative burden on physician practices to alleviate physician burnout.

“The American Medical Association has urged CMS to adopt several of these improvements as it designed the next generation of advanced primary care models. This new model holds promise for patients, and we look forward to working with CMS on its continued refinement and implementation.”
