Primary Care For All (PCFA) Task Force

Goals and Objectives

This new PCFA task force was established by the CAFP Board of Directors in April 2024 to recommend an organizational position on payment and system models to expand and simplify access to primary care and increase investment in primary care in California. The PCFA Task Force is charged with reviewing current CAFP policy and developing new policy related to health system and health insurance reform, including but not limited to unified health system financing models. The PCFA will develop policy recommendations which include policy, financing and political considerations, as well as CAFP member perspectives. The PCFA recommendation will be considered by the Board and reported at the All Member Advocacy Meeting.

Taskforce Membership

The CAFP Board appointed Drs. Kevin Grumbach and Anthony Chong to co-chair this important effort. The PCFA will consist of 9 to 11 members and will be a committee that is diverse in gender, ethnicity, geography, practice type, and opinion. The Taskforce should include members with expertise in health system financing, practice management, physician group financing and health policy.

Specifically, we are looking for CAFP members who represent the following:

  • Diverse Practice Types
  • Geographic Diversity
  • Various Career Stages
  • Knowledge of System and/or Organizational Financing

The Chairpeople of the CAFP Medical Practice Affairs Committee, Legislative Affairs Committee and Committee on Public Health and Equity will be offered a PCFA task force position.

Responsibilities and Commitment

Task force members should be able to commit to the following:

  • Participate with an open mind to a multitude of policy options (this is not an advocacy opportunity but is knowledge-based decision making on issues key to the future of family medicine).
