Register for AMA MACRA/QPP webinar

4/5/2017
 

The American Medical Association (AMA) is hosting a MACRA/QPP webinar on Thursday, April 20, 2017, at 7 PM EDT.

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), represents the most significant change in Medicare physician payment policy in over 25 years. Last fall, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released final policies on implementation of MACRA’s Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and alternative payment models (APMs). Collectively, these programs are part of what CMS now calls the Quality Payment Program (QPP).

Physicians have the opportunity to pick their pace of participation during the 2017 QPP transition year. During the 2017 transition year, physicians only need to report 1 quality measure for 1 patient, 1 Improvement Activity or all of the required Advancing Care Information (ACI) measures to avoid a negative payment adjustment in 2019. While the performance year is 2017, physicians will not receive their payment adjustment until 2 years later.

Taking steps now to prepare for 2017 and beyond can ease the transition for your practice and position you to earn financial rewards for the high-value care you provide.  This webinar will help physicians and medical society staff understand both MIPS and APMs.  Please join the AMA to learn what needs to be done to prepare and succeed. 

Date: Thu, Apr 20, 2017
Time: 7:00 PM EDT
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Host(s): Terri Marchiori
