Event Details

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 created the Quality Payment Program which includes numerous changes to clinician practice. The Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula was repealed and Medicare now rewards clinicians for value over volume. Multiple quality programs were streamlined under the new Merit Based Incentive Payments System (MIPS). Clinicians can receive bonus payments for participation in eligible alternative payment models (APMs). Measures for consideration include: patient reported outcome and functional status measures, patient experience measures, care coordination measures, and measures of appropriate use of services. Find out what this all means to you, your practice, your patients, and building a value-based healthcare system.
