New CMS MACRA Rule: The 5 Biggest Implications for Your Move to Value
Posted on Apr 29, 2016

The recent CMS proposed rule on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization ACT—also known as MACRA— is the strongest push yet toward risk-based payment models. MACRA lays out two reimbursement tracks for physicians in Medicare fee-for-service: the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APMs). The MACRA proposed rule has left many health system leaders wondering what this means for their system. Which track is right for us? Are our physicians ready? What action do we need to take? Tackling these questions can be overwhelming without a good understanding of the proposed rule and the possible paths forward.
