Tell CMS #MACRA #MIPS is bad 4 both patients & physicians

Dear AOA leadership,

Below you’ll find for links on MACRA MIPS, the latest price-fixing and medical practice control mechanism from The President and congress via CMS. If you’ve read the legislation, you’ll find that all solo and small private practices will be eliminated over the next few years, and eventually even the larger practices will follow because of “negative payment adjustments.”

Please act immediately to exclude all practices under 10 physicians, with 10,000 Medicare patients, billing less than $1 million a year. The current exclusion is 100 Medicare patients and $10,000 a year. Further, we need to get government entities out of the practice of medicine. Furthermore, the AOA must make a plan and take steps to take back the practice of osteopathic medicine from third-party “stakeholders” as well.
