AMA to Conduct Survey of Physician Practice Expenses
The American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) is one of more than 170 health care organizations supporting a new national study by the American Medical Association (AMA) that will collect representative data on physician practice expenses. The AMA Physician Practice Information Survey aims to understand better the costs faced by physician practices to support physician payment advocacy.
The study will serve as an opportunity to communicate accurate financial information to policymakers, including members of Congress and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. AMA has contracted with Mathematica, an independent research company with extensive experience in survey methods as well as health care delivery and finance reform, to conduct the study. The survey will be administered from July 2023–April 2024. Physicians will be randomly selected to participate. ASBrS strongly encourages all physicians who are contacted to complete the survey as soon as possible.
