New Report Details Effect of ACA on Practicing Physicians

A comprehensive new report from The Physicians Foundation titled, “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Beyond the Horizon into 2015,” examines the ACA’s political and budget dynamics, initial successes and failures, and its most serious challenges moving forward, with particular focus on how these issues are of importance to practicing physicians. Specifically, the report provides updates on the Medicare physician fee schedule, emerging physician-insurer network and contracting issues, and new Medicare legislation.

It is the mission of The Physicians Foundation to ensure physicians are aware of ongoing and future changes that could potentially – and significantly – impact their practice of medicine. A final follow-up report on the Medicare program, which will focus on how the ACA is driving health system changes through Medicare regulatory dynamics, is slated for release later this year. Be sure to check The Foundation’s website http://www.physiciansfoundation.org/ and follow them on Twitter at @PhysiciansFound for the latest health care news and physician resources.
