Washington, D.C. (May 15, 2024) – Ann Greiner, President and CEO of the Primary Care Collaborative, issued the following statement regarding the introduction of the Pay PCPs Act of 2024 by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA):

“We’re heartened to see Senator Whitehouse and Senator Cassidy’s bipartisan commitment to improving seniors’ access to comprehensive primary care by proposing legislation that would offer hybrid payment (a mix of FFS and prospective payment) to Medicare primary care practices.

With our Better Health-NOW Campaign partners, we’ll respond to the Request for Information and look forward to working with Senator Whitehouse, Senator Cassidy and their peers to secure bold reforms that strengthen primary care.”

As demonstrated by CBO reports and the best research, well-designed primary care payment reforms can unlock powerful improvements in health outcomes and a more affordable health care system.
