Curious about the MACRA law and how it affects you? MACRA established the Quality Payment Program, designed to change how physicians are paid for care provided to Medicare beneficiaries. The goal is to shift the focus to quality care through revised performance reporting and a new payment adjustment structure.
The  MACRA Quality Payment Program is complex, and rollout will take several years — but there are requirements that healthcare organizations need to start adhering to in 2017. What do you need to do for MACRA in 2017 to avoid a negative adjustment and earn an incentive payment? Our short video answers this question, and provides all the information you need about the new law.
