AMA applauds CMS for expanding payment models

Join us!

The American Medical Association (AMA) distributed the following statement from its president, Andrew W. Gurman, M.D, on December 20…

“The AMA supports CMS as it expands the models that can qualify as advanced APMs (alternative payment models), allowing more practices to have the opportunity to succeed under MACRA (the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015) without participating in MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment System). The AMA is working with the agency to expand opportunities for different specialties and practices to participate in innovative care models, and today’s announcement advances this shared goal. We hope that CMS will continue to expand the list of advanced APMs in the future so new delivery and payment arrangements can be supported and promoted – a win for physicians and patients alike.”
