Practice Group Network

 

The Practice Group Network (PGN) advocates for policies that promote PALTC practices which serve the nation’s frail, elderly, and disabled population. Specifically, the PGN focuses on the promotion of the practice and the reduction of administrative burdens and penalties that threaten the sustainability of these practices. It advocates for:

  • The development of appropriate quality measures for physician quality reporting programs
  • Availability of alternative payment models specific for PALTC practice
  • Ability for PALTC to be gain-sharing partners in ongoing bundled payment demonstration projects
  • Interoperability of IT systems between PALTC practices and facilities they serve
  • Development of a specialty for PALTC practices
  • Appropriate reimbursement for fee-for-service codes in the resource-based relative value scale system
