Physicians Advocacy Institute

Advocacy to Strengthen Medicare

PAI actively promotes Medicare policies that sustain and improve this critically important health insurance program for our nation’s seniors, asking that Congress and HHS and other federal regulators: 

  • Develop programs and test models that support independent physician practices’ ability to coordinate and deliver high quality services to Medicare patients under “value-based payment” systems, including Medicare’s Quality Payment Program (QPP);  
  • Deliver on the promise of regulatory relief, eliminating duplicative and unnecessary regulations that increase costs for physician practices; 
  • Ensure a fairer and more streamlined audit process, including an affordable, timely and fair appeals process; and 
  • Adopt policies that eliminate the artificial payment incentives to deliver services in hospital-owned settings over less costly settings, including physician offices.
