ABSTRACT
The article reports on the second-year performance results for the Physician Group Practice demonstration in the U.S. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the 10 groups earned a total of $16.7 million in incentive payments for achieving benchmark or target performance on at least 25 out of 27 quality markers for patients with congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease and diabetes. According to the agency's calculations, the physician group demonstration saved Medicare $17.4 million in its second year.
