Medical Trade Association Makes Value-Based Care Recommendations to CMS

An association representing more than 450 multispecialty medical groups and integrated delivery systems is urging CMS to implement policies to advance the shift from fee-for-service to value-based care.


AMGA said the recommendations are aimed at reducing Medicare programs' regulatory complexity to ensure support for providers as they deliver care in value-based models.


"AMGA believes regulations should be designed and implemented so that providers are encouraged to innovate. Value-based models, such as accountable care organizations and other alternative payment models, are designed to remove the misaligned financial incentives that grew out of the FFS [fee-for-service] system, while also entrusting providers with the responsibility for the health of not just individual patients, but an assigned patient population," AMGA President and CEO Jerry Penso, MD, wrote in a letter to CMS Administrator Seema Verma.
