AANEM policy staff is continuing to work on resources to assist AANEM members in their transition to Medicare’s Quality Payment Program (QPP), created as a result of the MACRA legislation enacted by Congress in April 2015. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released their final rule implementing the QPP, which is set to take effect on January 1, 2017.
 
Both CMS and the American Medical Association (AMA) have created extensive materials that are available on their websites:
