It is important that we understand this regulation and assist the organization in the journey towards value-based care. – David Chou
Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA)
Signed into law in 2015 and fleshed out by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in spring 2016, MACRA aims to create a value-based model for how physicians and other health care providers are paid for the clinical services they provide to Medicare patients. It replaces the unpopular Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) payment structure with a system that rewards value-based care. It also consolidates existing reimbursement programs into one streamlined structure. CMS expects to implement MACRA’s components over the next several years.
