New Commission Formed to Analyze Physician Payments

The National Commission on Physician Payment Reform has been established by the Society of General Internal Medicine to make recommendations about physician payments.  The commission will meet over the next year to look at how doctors are paid, and to analyze how accountable care organizations, medical homes and other arrangements will affect healthcare financing.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the California HealthCare Foundation and the Sergei S. Zinkoff Fund for Medical Education and Research will provide funding for the commission, according to Family Practice News.

The commission plans to issue its own report on reforming the healthcare payment system by early 2013.
