Two PTAC Members Quit in Frustration: In 3 years, 16 Recommendations Offered to CMS and None Accepted
As the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) works to get its new primary care physician payment models off the ground, the agency now also has to deal with resignations at the organization the government charged with developing new Medicare payment models. The Physician-Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC) was created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) with the mission to make comments and recommendations to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) on proposals for physician-focused payment models. "The secretary is required by MACRA to review PTAC's comments and recommendations on submitted proposals and post a detailed response on the CMS website," according to HHS's description of PTAC. On Tuesday, PTAC member Harold Miller, MS, resigned from the committee; committee member Len Nichols, PhD, resigned the next day. Miller said his decision to resign was not contingent on anyone else's, while Nichols said that seeing Miller resign helped him make his own decision to do so also.
