The passage by Congress of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 ("MACRA") caused the repeal of the Medicare sustainable growth rate ("SGR") methodology and signaled a sea change in the way Medicare rewards clinicians for providing quality care.
On April 27, 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) released a much anticipated 962 page proposed rule (“Proposed Rule”) that outlines specific details on how CMS intends to implement MACRA value-based payment reform under a new framework called the Quality Payment Program.
Why Should You Attend:
Attendees should register because they need to be paying close attention to the structure and program specific details on CMS's Quality Payment Program, MACRA, MIPS and APM incentive implementation.
Health care leaders need to begin preparing now because the first performance year for these programs begins on January 1, 2017 and payment adjustments will follow in 2019 (i.e., the 2019 bonus/penalty adjustments will be based on the 2017 performance metrics).
Areas Covered in this Webinar:
The Proposed Rule includes program-specific details on how CMS intends to establish the Merit-based Incentive Payment System ("MIPS"), a new program that consolidates components of three existing programs, the Physician Quality Reporting System ("PQRS"), the Physician Value- based Payment Modifier, and the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. The proposed rule also would establish incentives for clinician participation in certain alternative payment models ("APMs").
Provide a general overview of MACRA and the CMS Quality Payment Program
Discuss the consolidation of PQRS, the Physician Value- based Payment Modifier, and the Medicare EHR Incentive Program into MIPS
Describe incentives for participation in certain alternative payment models (APMs)
Discuss CMS's Quality Measure Development Plan for the Quality Payment Program transition
