As we move forward with MACRA implementation, even those physicians who don’t currently participate in Medicare or Medicaid will be affected as changes to third party payer agreements may impact how they will be paid in the future.
(PRWEB) July 06, 2016
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) proposed rule for new value-based payments under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), has justifiably been called one of the most sweeping changes in years for physicians.
How will these new Medicare regulations affect independent physicians in traditional practices?
Specialdocs Consultants, LLC will host a complimentary 30-minute webinar on Monday, July 11 at Noon CT, led by Michele P. Madison, Partner in Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP's Healthcare Practice. During this online session, Michele will break down MACRA and describe how it will affect physicians practicing independently.
Physicians will learn about:
1. Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and reimbursement for Alternative Payment Models (APMs).
2. The composite performance score calculation related to physicians based upon MIPS factors.
3. The transition from Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value Modifier (VM) and Meaningful Use (MU) to MIPS.
4. APMs and the impact of Advanced APMs on bonus payments for physicians.
5. Alternative practice models that allow physicians to remain independent and autonomous.
