In 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released a 962 page proposed rule that outlines specific details on how CMS intends to implement MACRA value-based payment reform under a new framework called the Quality Payment Program.
The Proposed Rule includes program-specific details on how CMS intends to establish the Merit-based Incentive Payment System ("MIPS"), a new program that consolidates components of three existing programs, the Physician Quality Reporting System ("PQRS"), the Physician Value-Based Payment Modifier, and the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. Also, the proposed rule would establish incentives for clinician participation in certain alternative payment models (APMs).
Health care leaders need to begin preparing now because the first performance year for these programs begins on January 1, 2017 and payment adjustments will follow in 2019 (i.e., the 2019 bonus/penalty adjustments will be based on the 2017 performance metrics).
Join expert speaker Joseph Wolfe in this webinar to get insights on the structure and program specific details on CMS' Quality Payment Program, MACRA, MIPS and APM incentive implementation.
Joseph will also highlight the key components of Proposed Rule and provide an overview of CMS's new Quality Payment Program. A straight-forward, practical explanation of key MACRA provisions and the Quality Payment Program, including the timing and features of new MIPS and APM incentive implementation will also be covered.
