MGMA Poll: Medical group practices oppose mandatory Medicare alternative payment models


3/1/2018: Medical group practices overwhelmingly prefer flexibility and financial incentives to move to Medicare alternative payment models (APMs) according to a new MGMA Stat poll. “Despite support for APMs, a large majority of physician practices oppose government mandated participation, citing lack of evidence, diversity among medical practices, and the negative impact on practice innovation,” said Anders Gilberg, MGMA SVP of Government Affairs. In the MGMA poll, 72% of respondents expressed their opposition to mandatory participation in Medicare APMs. MGMA has long championed voluntary APM opportunities for physician group practices of different types, sizes and specialties and continues to urge CMS to eliminate barriers to physician participation in payment models that support high-quality, cost-effective patient care.
