SEC. 1002. <<NOTE: 42 USC 1395w-4 note.>>  FINDINGS; PURPOSE STATEMENT.

    In order to support the provision of quality care for our nation's 
seniors, Congress finds it appropriate to reform physician 
reimbursements under the Medicare program. SGR reform legislation 
provides such an opportunity, but not until next year. In order to 
facilitate such reform, Congress finds that the Centers for Medicare & 
Medicaid Services should continue to focus its efforts on the following 
areas:
            (1) Simplify and reduce administrative burden on 
        physicians.--The application and assessment of measures and 
        other activities under SGR reform should be facilitated by the 
        Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in a way that 
        accounts for the administrative burden such measurement places 
        on physicians. Therefore, the Congress encourages CMS to 
        identify and implement, to the extent practicable, mechanisms to 
        ensure that the application and assessment of measures be 
        coordinated across programs.
            (2) Timely feedback for physicians.--In order for measure 
        and assessment programs to encourage the highest quality care 
        for Medicare seniors, the Congress finds it critical that CMS 
        provide physicians with feedback on performance in as close to 
        real time as possible. Such timely feedback will ensure that 
        physicians can excel under a system of meaningful measurement.

[[Page 127 STAT. 1196]]

            (3) Encourage development of new models.--There is great 
        need to test alternatives to Fee-For-Service reimbursement in 
        the Medicare program. One option is the promotion and adoption 
        of new models of care for physicians. To date, there has been 
        significant development and testing of models for primary care. 
        Congress supports these efforts and encourages them to continue 
        in the future. Congress also encourages the development and 
        testing of models of specialty care.
