Webinar: What’s Up with MACRA and MIPS

May 17, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


In 2015, Congress passed the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). It established new payment systems tied to cost and quality of care, rather than volume, and streamlined various programs into a single framework called the Quality Payment Program. With over 2100 pages to read through, it’s easy to believe the changes will be overwhelming. Not to worry! This presentation will help you to understand the MACRA final rule and review our personal take on the new program.

After this presentation, viewers will have a better understanding of:

  • What is MACRA and the Quality Payment Program
  • Two tracks of payment: MIPS and APMs
  • Resources you can use to learn more
  • What you need to prepare for and do to participate
