MRC-045: Shared Stewardship of Health Care Costs

 
Shared Stewardship of Health Care Costs: The Wisconsin Medical Society supports and asks our AMA to work to promote the concept of shared stewardship of health care costs by promoting transparency of prices, true costs, Medicare reimbursements, Medicaid payments for services, drugs, procedures and treatments available at the time of service so there could be Shared Responsibility for the decisions at the patient physician visit. The Society supports and asks our AMA to work to develop new CPT codes to reimburse the physician for the time spent in Shared Stewardship visits; and supports and asks our AMA to promote Tort Protection for decisions made in a Shared Responsibility/Shared Stewardship patient physician relationship.
