Nurses Rap Payment Models Recommended by AMA
A recommendation from the American Medical Association calls for physicians to determine how care teams are paid. The American Association of Nurse Practitioners calls the AMA's link of reimbursements to physician-led teams "anti-competitive."
The American Medical Association House of Delegates this week adopted recommendations for creating payment structures for physician-led team care delivery models with physicians determining who gets paid and how much.
"The success rate of physician-led team-based models of care has been proven time and again by trusted industry leaders like the Mayo Clinic, Geisinger Health System, Intermountain Healthcare and Kaiser Permanente," AMA President Ardis D. Hoven, MD, said in prepared remarks.
"In the words of Dr. William Mayo, 'It has become necessary to develop medicine as a cooperative science: the clinician, the specialist, and the laboratory workers uniting for the good of the patient.' The AMA and the broader physician community firmly believe that this approach represents the future of health care delivery in America."
