PCC has an established, reliable name in the field of healthcare, and particularly within primary care. PCC regularly issues comment letters on federal proposals and has an active dialogue with many federal agencies regarding healthcare payment reform. Most recently, PCC has offered comments to Congress and CMMI regarding the Physician Fee Schedule and the Primary Care First Model.  The proven track record has shown to key stakeholders and decision makers that the perspective of PCC and its members is both important and valuable.
