MACRA eLearning Series

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) repeals the Medicare sustainable growth rate (SGR) methodology for updates to the physician fee schedule (PFS) and replaces it with a new approach to payment called the Quality Payment Program that rewards the delivery of high-quality patient care through two avenues: Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs) and the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for eligible clinicians or groups under the PFS.The first performance year for Quality Payment Program began in January 2017.

 

In this e-learning series we will cover the overview of the Quality Payment Program, requirements for the transition year 2017 and how to maximize your performance under the new Payment Model.
