PCPCC Highlights Key Priorities in Comments to CMS on the Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program

Re: Medicare Program; Revisions to Payment Policies Under the Physician Fee Schedule and Other Revisions to Part B for CY 2019; Medicare Shared Savings Program Requirements; Quality Payment Program; and Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Program [CMS–1693–P]

The Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) appreciates this opportunity to provide several comments on the proposed physician fee schedule and quality payment program. We applaud the administration for proposing bold changes designed to move the health system forward while also seeking to improve care delivery and reduce clinician administrative burden. PCPCC continues to support Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) efforts to expand the use of value-based and alternative payment models, while simultaneously reducing documentation requirements that are less necessary under payment models tied to outcome measures.
