ABSTRACT
The article explores the challenges facing physicians in California. Problems caused by a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) physician reimbursement program known as the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) program have been worsened by other administrative changes such as the implementation of the National Provider Identifier (NPI) and the switch to electronic health records from paper documents. The changes are contributing to delay in Medicare payments, according to Ted Epperly of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
