Help us help YOU to Update Medicare Physician Payment!

The American Medical Association (AMA) Physician Practice Information (PPI) Survey is nearing completion, and we urgently need all selected physicians to actively engage in this effort.

Reimbursement Updates

The intent of the survey, which has been endorsed by over 170 medical societies and other health care associations, is to collect updated and accurate data on practice costs which are a key element of physician payment. The data have not been updated since last collected over 15 years ago and it is critically important to update these data to ensure accurate payment.

On March 27, Mathematica emailed more than 500 large practices, representing more than 100,000 practicing physicians and health care systems, to invite them for the first time to join the survey effort. In addition to these new invitations, Mathematica will begin emailing all sampled practices, current and newly invited, on a weekly basis with reminders about the survey. In April, physicians will receive direct invitations to complete a two-minute survey on direct patient care hours worked.
