In the spring of 2015, Congress passed a major revision in how medical practices will be paid for treating Medicare patients. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (or MACRA) moves the focus from the number of services provided to the outcomes or value of those services. Services provided in 2017 will form the basis for payments in 2019. Depending on activities your practice takes throughout 2017, you could see a reduction of up to 4% in your Medicare revenue or an increase of up to 12%.
2017 is designed as a transition year to the new MIPS program. Requirements will be significantly more difficult in 2018 and the penalties get steeper. Practices need to use 2017 to put in place the processes and systems they’ll need to be successful in future years.
In this session, expert speaker Jeanne Chamberlin will help you understand how new legislation will impact your practice and how you are paid for services to Medicare patients. You will learn the requirements and scoring methodology that will be used under the new MIPS program. And finally, you will also become familiar with steps you need to take now to avoid future payment cuts.
