The Final Rule: Navigating MACRA in 2018
The Quality Payment Program (QPP) under MACRA is all about value based care. Physician reimbursement changed with the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015. After all, it was the most dramatic upheaval to the system since President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare into law back in 1965.
Acknowledging the learning curve that would inevitably accompany such major changes, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) made 2017 a transitional year for physicians so they could test the waters and see how best to apply MACRA’s rules to their practice.
Now that we’ve reached 2018, physicians are expected to understand the ins and outs of compliance, and if your practice isn’t fully participating, you could get as much as a five percent negative payment adjustment on 2020’s Medicare Part B claims.
