Title: Overview of the Quality Payment Program Proposed Rule
Details: The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) changes the way Medicare rewards clinicians for providing quality care by streamlining multiple quality programs into a new Quality Payment Program tied to Part B Fee-For-Service payments. With the implementation of MACRA and the replacement of the Sustainable Growth Rate, we will pay clinicians participating in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System or Advanced Alternative Payment Models of the Quality Payment Program beginning in 2019. This listening session is an opportunity for stakeholders to provide CMS early feedback on proposed policy for the Quality Payment Program. We encourage participants to review the proposed rule (CMS-5517-P) prior to the listening session.
Please note: There will not be a Q&A period during this webinar and National Provider Call because CMS must protect the rulemaking process and comply with the Administrative Procedure Act. Participants are encouraged to submit comments through the formal process outlined in the Federal Register. CMS will not consider feedback during the call as formal comments on the rule. See the proposed rule for information on submitting these comments by the close of the 60-day comment period on June 27, 2016.
