MACRA Final Rule Released Revealing Changes

This past Friday morning, October 15, 2016, the Department of Health and Human Services released its final rule (with a comment period) on the Quality Payment Program ("QPP"), a part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 ("MACRA").

The QPP has two tracks: the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System ("MIPS") and the Advanced Alternative Payment Model ("APM").

Compared with the proposed rule, the main changes in the final rule include:

  • support for small and independent practices
  • expansion of APM opportunities
  • flexible 2017 reporting options
  • a focus on a unified program that supports clinician-driven quality. 

CMS launched a new Quality Payment Program website where the final rule, along with educational material, can be found. This website will be a great resource for eligible clinicians as they rollout QPP activities in 2017. 

For More Information:

Learn more about the details of the final rule in GE Healthcare Camden Group's webinar: "Chart Your Course for MACRA Success" this Thursday, October 20th. To register for this complimentary webinar, please click the button below.
