MACRA & Delivery Reform

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 permanently repealed the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR). Under MACRA, nearly all physicians will have to choose between one of two paths of the Quality Payment Program (QPP): (1) Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), which consolidates existing Medicare fee-for-service physician incentive programs such as Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value-based Modifier (VM) and Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Record (EHR) or (2) participation in an Advanced Alternate Payment Model (APM).

Quality Payment Program (QPP) Information Center – Offers tools and resources to help you and your practice prepare for and navigate through the two tracks - MIPS or APMs.
