The Medicare payment system is being transformed as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) link payment updates to physicians’ efforts to improve quality of care, reduce health care spending and participate in alternative payment models. Use AMA’s tools and resources to better manage the impact of these changes to the physician fee schedule and Quality Payment Program (QPP).

Learn what the AMA is doing to ensure patients, particularly those with chronic conditions, don't lose their Medicaid coverage.
