AAFP presses CMS to improve plan for patient relationship codes

Family Medicine SmartBrief | Aug 24, 2016

The AAFP is urging the CMS to make improvements in its proposal to create three patient relationship codes to help determine incentive payments under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act. A letter to the agency from AAFP Board Chair Robert Wergin, M.D., asks for more clarity on how the categories and their related codes will be used, and notes the categories lack distinction and may not allow physicians to make an appropriate selection.
