Physician organizations like the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Physicians Advocacy Institute (PAI), of which North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) CEO Robert W. Seligson serves as President, recently submitted comments on the Quality Payment Program (QPP) proposed rule to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
QPP was established under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). This year is considered the transition year. Learn more about the QPP and its goals.  Because the QPP means significant changes to how clinicians are paid within Medicare, CMS is continuing to solicit stakeholder feedback.
The AMA issued a press release briefly summarizing its formal comments.
PAI also submitted comments. Read those comments here.
The NCMS has worked closely with PAI to develop resources you can use to understand and succeed under the MACRA legislation including how to navigate the QPP. Access these free resources and others on our website on our MACRA page.
