240.001 Geographic Practice Cost Indices

240.001

Geographic Practice Cost Indices (GPCIs): The Texas Medical Association supports the collection and evaluation of the most current valid and reliable data and its use in calculating accurate geographic practice cost indices and in determining geographic payment areas. Variation between geographic payment areas should be minimized and equitable access to medical care services should not be diminished by geographic practice cost indices that are unreasonably low in rural areas (Supplemental CSE p 162, A-90; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 5-I-01; amended CSE Rep. 8-A-11).
