72% of medical groups oppose mandatory Medicare alternative payment models

Nearly three-fourths (72 percent) of physicians in medical group practices oppose mandatory participation in Medicare alternative payment models, according to a recent Medical Group Management Association poll.

The Feb. 27 poll comprised responses from 1,176 physicians, most of whom prefer flexibility and financial incentives to push forward Medicare APM models.

"Despite support for APMs, a large majority of physician practices oppose government mandated participation, citing lack of evidence, diversity among medical practices, and the negative impact on practice innovation," said Anders Gilberg, MGMA senior vice president of government affairs. 

Fourteen percent of respondents support mandatory government APMs, while another 14 percent are unsure.
