As we complete the first quarter of 2017, several challenges related to MACRA and MIPS transition lie ahead of us. MACRA moves the focus from number of services to the quality of services provided by your practice. Services provided by your practice in 2017 will form the basis for your payments in 2019. Your Medicare revenue can see a reduction of up to 4% or an increase of up to 12%, which totally depends on the activities that your practice undertakes this year.
2017 is designed as a transition year for the MIPS program. Requirements will be significantly more difficult in 2018 and the penalties will get steeper. Practices need to use 2017 to put in place the processes and systems now to be successful in the coming years. Now is the time to plan, prepare and implement.
This session by expert speaker Jeanne J. Chamberlin will discuss how the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) will move the focus from the number of services provided by your practice to the outcomes or value of those services. You will learn about effective strategies to avoid payment cuts and align your processes and systems for better reimbursement in the coming years.
