About the Event

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) goes into effect for Medicare physicians and clinicians starting in 2017. These implementation rules released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) represent the most significant changes to Medicare since its inception. This program will examine the following questions to better understand its evolution and opportunity.

  • How did the MACRA legislation evolve from conception to implementation?
  • What is the status of the final rule and do you forsee any changes/amendments?
  • How is CMS prioritizing the implementation?
  • Does CMS continue to see compliance with the commercial plan deadline of three years?
  • How will physicians be evaluated under MIPS?
  • What is the acquisition strategy for the MACRA contracting opportunities and what vehicles are being targeted?
  • How will the new administration influence the direction of MACRA implementation?
  • How will Meaningful Use requirements be different depending upon the type of provider attesting with the passage of the MACRA?
