2019 Proposed Fee Schedule Changes - Input From Peers

Find me on:

A few weeks ago The AAFP released its initial summary(2 page PDF) of the proposed 2019 Medicare physician fee schedule which, for the first time, also includes recommended changes that would affect CMS' Quality Payment Program in 2019.  Is this good or bad for you? Let me share some quotes from the AAFP website that can be found here: https://www.aafp.org/news/government-medicine/20180724mpfssumm.html

Not a single comment supports the proposed changes. It is very clear the proposed changes will not be voted for in the affirmative. We all know how hard physicians work, and the diminishing pay cannot continue or physician burn out will sky rocket.
