During the third week of May 2015 I joined a legion of medical
students, residents, primary care physicians, and internal medicine
subspecialists on Capitol Hill to advocate for the "House of
Medicine". I was particularly buoyed by the presence of several
students and residents who were taking early steps through
participating in the democratic process to enhance patient care by
I'd like to briefly highlight some of the initiatives which were
the focus of our visit.
First, we commended Congress for enactment of bipartisan
legislation that finally eliminated the flawed SGR formula and
moved us toward a new value-based payment and delivery system.
Second, we asked Congress to introduce and pass legislation to
continue the current Medicare 10 percent primary care incentive
program that is set to expire at the end of this year. This
program, which began in 2011, pays eligible internal medicine
specialists, family physicians, and geriatricians a 10 percent
bonus on designated office visits and other primary care services.
It will sunset on January 1, 2016.
Third, we asked Congress to help improve access to primary care
for patients enrolled in Medicaid by enacting legislation to ensure
that Medicaid payments for primary care and immunization services
are reimbursed at no less than what Medicare pays by requesting
they cosponsor Senate Bill "Ensuring Access to Primary Care for
Women & Children Ac" (S. 737) or House Bill (H.R. 2253).
Fourth, in the area of Graduate Medical Education, we requested
that Congress ensure that overall GME funding for FY2016 is
sufficient to train enough physicians and urged a GME financing
plan though an all-payer system where Medicare, Medicaid and
private payers would contribute to GME funding as a public good. We
also advocated for passing legislation that will increase the
number of GME training positions in primary care specialties
(including internal medicine) and others facing shortages, such as
in the Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act (S.1148 and H.R.
2124), the Creating Access to Residency Education (CARE) Act (H.R.
Finally, you may have heard about the emerging 21st Century
Cures legislation by the House Energy & Commerce Committee.
This bill would reauthorize funding for the National Institutes of
Health (NIH) research and establish an NIH innovation fund, as well
as new programs to support young, emerging scientists. It will also
support telemedicine as a method of health care delivery and the
movement toward true interoperability of health records. We
encouraged the House Energy and Commerce Committee to take bold
action to address the critical scientific pipeline by increasing
funding to the NIH and restoring our global leadership in
All the best in ACP,
