    Survey: Urologists weigh in on MIPS, APMs, burnout

    Reimbursement changes

    Several survey questions centered around the shift from fee for service to value-based care. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said they would prefer to be compensated via a straight salary, or a salary with relatively small incentives, versus fee for service. Just over one-third (36%) said they would favor a single-payer health insurance system.

    When asked to describe their attitude toward value-based care, urologists were given four statements to choose from plus a fill-in option. The write-in comments were nearly universally negative. “It is a very bad idea because they always measure the wrong thing!” said one respondent. “It’s not in the interest of patients but of insurance and government,” said another, while a third said, “They have no idea what value is in health care nor how or what to measure.”

    Half of urologists strongly agreed with the statement, “I used to enjoy being a physician more, but today it is less financially lucrative and more stressful.” Another 33% agreed with this statement. Only 9% disagreed or strongly disagreed with it.
