CMS is moving forward on implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) and recently released its final regulations for implementation in 2017. Under MACRA, nearly all providers who bill under the Physician Fee Schedule will be subject to the new Quality Payment Program (QPP), making understanding of the final rule an imperative for providers.

Join this webconference to hear our early summary of the most important elements of the final QPP regulations for 2017, including key changes to the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) track. In addition, we will share our initial take on next steps for providers. In a subsequent webconference, we will provide a more in-depth look at the specific details of QPP in 2017.

You'll learn:

  • The basic framework CMS plans to use to implement MACRA in 2017
  • The most important changes in the final rule
  • Next steps for provider organizations in response to MACRA
