AMA Asks OIG for APM Safe Harbors

The American Medical Association (AMA) recently submitted a letter to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to create a safe harbor to facilitate coordinated care and promote well-designed alternative payment models (APMs). While waivers currently exist for some payment models, the AMA urges OIG to provide more options and flexibility to encourage the development of physician-led APMs on a wider-scale.

The letter is available here.
