Incorrect Wording in: Bending the Cost Curve: A Critical Component of Health Care Reform

JAMA. 2009;302(18):1972. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.1612

Incorrect Wording: In the Commentary entitled “Bending the Cost Curve: A Critical Component of Health Care Reform” published in the September 16, 2009, issue of JAMA (2009;302[11]:1223-1224), an incorrect statement appeared on page 1223, right column, first full paragraph. The sentence that reads “The Medicare Payment Review Commission (MEDPAC) could also recalibrate the Relative Value Scale formulas to provide increased payment for more time-intensive patient interaction and primary disease prevention services” should have read “The Medicare Payment Review Commission (MEDPAC) could recommend to Congress increased payment for more time-intensive patient interaction and primary disease prevention services.” On pages 1223 and 1224, in the sentence that reads “In the long run, physicians not participating in such accountable incentive payment systems might be subject to reductions or penalties in updates of the MEDPAC fee schedule,” “MEDPAC fee schedule” should have read “Medicare fee schedule.”
