Study data reported in JAMA Internal Medicine showed Medicare pays less for cognitive care than it does for procedural care, directly affecting primary care physicians. Researchers cited two examples, finding Medicare pays for screening colonoscopies at 368% of the rate of cognitive care and for cataract removal at 486% of the rate of cognitive care. The study supports AAFP's efforts to improve pay levels for family physicians.
