This report by The National Commission on Physician Payment Reform highlights the unsustainable spending in the U.S. healthcare system, exacerbated by current physician payment models. It identifies fee-for-service reimbursement, reliance on technology and expensive care, and a high proportion of specialists as key drivers of high healthcare costs. The report advocates for fundamental changes in physician payment to improve patient outcomes and control healthcare costs, recommending a transition to payment models that reward quality and value-based care over a five-year period.
