The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) will make significant changes to how Medicare pays for physician services. The law also repealed the flawed Medicare physician sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula and replaced it with predictable payment increases.
In October 2016, CMS released the final rule outlining new payment programs under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). MACRA's Quality Payment Program (QPP) is a significant change to Medicare payment policy reshaping how information about patient care is captured and valued, which is a complicated process requiring a significant amount of time and education. Implementing MACRA likely will be a major challenge to your practice. It is the Society’s goal to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information, actionable resources, and tools.
