Providers warn CMS that ‘doc fix’ reveals broken measures
Modern Healthcare

Hospital and physician groups are cautioning the CMS that it needs better measures before it ties physician pay to quality and outcomes.

The warnings came in letters from the American Hospital Association, American Medical Association and other provider groups in response to the CMS’ request for comments on how it should structure the new physician payment policy that was included in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act passed earlier this year. The comment period ends Tuesday.
