Despite the fact that the majority of physicians are unaware of the impact new, quality-based reimbursement will have on their practice, MACRA is here to stay and appears likely to be used as a template by health insurance and other third-party payers in the near future. In an effort to help the 80 percent of physicians who are not familiar with the law, we're hosting a webinar to prepare physician practices in ambulatory care with the information they need to understand and comply with MACRA regulations in 2017 and beyond. This webinar will cover:
Detailed explanation of MACRA's two paths for ambulatory care participation, Advanced APM and MIPS, including reporting, bonuses/penalties and provider scoring.
Failing to participate is not an option if providers want to avoid an automatic -4 percent penalty in 2019 and a low-value score publicly posted on the CMS website.
In-depth discussion on how Medicaid and private insurers are adopting the new value-based model including shared savings programs and public reporting of measures.
