ABFM Joins Push to Reform Primary Care Payment and Regulatory Burden

Submitted on Tue, 12/22/2020 - 14:08

As 2020 comes to an end, we have some very important news to share for the coming year. The American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) is joining with the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and five other organizations, representing more than 400,000 primary care physicians nationwide, to take a stand and advocate for major reform in primary care payment and regulation. Together, we are promoting this stance and its supporting evidence with the incoming administration and other policy makers, health care administrators, employers, payers and patients. This comes at a critical time when the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare what was already obvious to us on the frontlines of primary care — there is an urgent need to improve health and health care in our country. You can read the joint statement here.

We ask you to join us in this effort by signing on to the proposal here. By signing on, you can become part of the change to begin building more equitable and effective health care systems for generations to come.
