AGA Advocates to CMS for GI APMs

AGA leaders Larry Kosinski, MD, MBA, AGAF, clinical councillor, AGA Institute, and Joel V. Brill, MD, AGAF, AGA CPT advisor, met with high ranking officials from CMS and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to advocate for the inclusion of specialty alternative payment models (APMs) in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). AGA asked CMS that GI payment models that demonstrate positive clinical and fiscal results, such as Project Sonar, be recognized as a Clinical Practice Improvement Activity (CPIA) and represent a path to qualify as an APM in 2018.
