MACRA Listening Session: Quality Payment Program Proposed Rule

When: Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Time:    2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) changes the way Medicare rewards clinicians for providing quality care by streamlining multiple quality programs into a new Quality Payment Program tied to Part B Fee-For-Service payments. With the implementation of MACRA and the replacement of the Sustainable Growth Rate, we will pay clinicians participating in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System or Advanced Alternative Payment Models of the Quality Payment Program beginning in 2019.

This listening session is an opportunity for stakeholders to learn about the proposed policy for the Quality Payment Program. We encourage participants to review the proposed rule (CMS-5517-P) prior to the listening session.

If time allows, we will open the lines for feedback. We will not consider feedback during the call as formal comments on the rule. See the proposed rule for information on submitting these comments by the close of the 60-day comment period on June 27, 2016.

Target Audience: Part B Fee-For-Service clinicians; state and national associations that represent healthcare providers; and other stakeholders.
