The AAFP is intensifying its work to ensure that Congress not only supports G2211’s adoption but also addresses Medicare payment and administrative complexity.
“Primary care in this country is at a tipping point, but Congress can change that,” AAFP President-elect Steven Furr, M.D., FAAFP, told lawmakers during a hearing on a broad slate of health care topics.
A proposed rule aims to improve patients’ access to behavioral health care. The AAFP generally supports the proposal, but urged HHS not to disincentivize increased primary care payment.
This bipartisan caucus educates members of Congress and their staffs on critical primary care issues affecting their districts and advocates for policies that strengthen primary care.
Help us achieve a long-term solution in Medicare physician payment, address the administrative burdens you and your patients face daily, and back the next generation of family physicians.
This network pairs AAFP members with congressional leaders and elected officials supportive of priorities of family physicians to champion legislation and public policy.
