Primary care physicians' compensation better reflects productivity

The Medical Group Management Association surveyed 960 member practices to gauge compensation trends. Gross charges — which are the charges, at undiscounted rates, of all services provided (or productivity) — for all primary care physician categories increased slightly (0.4 percent) in 2000 compared with the 11.6 percent increase in 1999. This is the first time since 1994–95 that compensation outpaced production for PCPs. Meanwhile, for 17 specialty categories, the gap between productivity and compensation also narrowed, but not so drastically.
