Our Mission

Our Vision

The Tennessee Academy of Family Physicians will invigorate and empower Family Physicians in their efforts to enhance the health and wellness of Tennesseans.

2022 Educational Collaborative Between the TNAFP and ProTime, LLC

The Tennessee Academy of Family Physicians is excited to provide the TNAFP membership an educational collaborative again in 2022 between the TNAFP and ProTime, LLC on “Practice Enhancement Through Clinically Correct Coding.” This 23-session educational platform (up to 20 Prescribed credits) was designed by Nick Ulmer, M.D., CPC, family physician in South Carolina, to assist TNAFP members in successful navigation of the business of medicine. This course is designed to assist in successful navigation of the business of medicine. The sessions have been chosen to not only promote quality in care delivery, but also to assist in the economic side of practice enhancement. Because Family Medicine physicians are so broadly used in healthcare, we’ve chosen sessions that speak to both the inpatient and ambulatory practices of medicine. You will receive up to 20 CME Prescribed credits upon successful completion of these courses.

The AAFP has reviewed Practice Enhancement Through Clinically Correct Coding and deemed it acceptable for Prescribed credit. Term of Approval is from 01/01/2022 to 12/31/2022.

In this amendment, Tennessee proposes to convert the federal share of its Medicaid funding relating to providing its core medical services to its core population to a block grant. This innovative proposal reimagines the Medicaid financing structure in ways that emphasize state accountability for effective program management, while incentivizing performance and ensuring that financial responsibility for Tennessee’s Medicaid program continues to be equitably shared between the state and the federal government.
