  • With Tom Price in Charge, Doctors Are Winning Again in Washington Stat by Erin Mershon — Quietly, away from the spotlight cast on his effort to dismantle Obamacare, Price has been rolling back regulations that have been criticized by his former physician colleagues. And, unlike with the Affordable Care Act, he has been able to do so without the blessing of Congress. He's given an American Medical Association committee even more power over how much the federal government pays for different medical services. He has pitched retroactively reversing certain Medicare rules to ensure some physicians no longer face penalties they would otherwise have had to pay. He has proposed using almost $1 billion in savings that would be achieved through cuts to certain hospital payments to boost spending on physicians. And over and over again, he has delayed Obama-era regulations that would have penalized doctors who aren't ready or able to move away from Medicare's longstanding "fee-for-service" approach.
