|STATEMENT ON CONGRESS INCLUDING VALUE-BASED INCENTIVE PAYMENTS IN OMNIBUS PACKAGE
Coalition of provider organizations: Extension of payments to physicians and other clinicians who participate in alternative payment models vital step in preserving value-based care for millions of patients
“Congress demonstrated an admirable bipartisan commitment to patients by including Medicare’s incentive for value-based care in the omnibus package at 3.5%. This vital incentive will help physicians continue to build on the significant progress the United States is making to improve patients’ health and experience, support a healthcare system driven by good clinical outcomes, and reduce the cost of healthcare.
“The work toward a healthcare system rooted in value-based care does not end today. Physicians, clinicians, medical groups, and other healthcare stakeholders look forward to continuing to work with Congress in a bipartisan manner to support policies that promote value-based care for the good of every patient.”
