Better pay ahead seen for family physicians


Robert Wergin, M.D., president of the American Academy of Family Physicians, sees the light at the end of the tunnel regarding compensation of family physicians. Among his remarks to MedScape:

“With the passage of the Medicare Access and Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act, payment for services provided in an alternative payment model such as the patient-centered medical home will become more prominent. As that occurs, primary care physicians ¬†{such as family physicians} will see improved income because the services they provide are more appropriately valued under such a system.”
