Are You Ready for MACRA? IDSA is Here to Help
Join us for a MACRA Implementation Webinar: The Role of ID Physicians in Medicare’s Quality Payment Programs and the Value-Driven Health Care Movement 
 
Please join IDSA on June 7, at 7 pm EDT for a webinar discussing the proposed regulations for the implementation of a new quality physician payment program for services provided under the Medicare program. 
 
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released the proposed rule for payment reform changes as mandated by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015. Under MACRA, CMS is required to develop the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The proposed regulation (PDF), in excess of 400 pages, outlines the requirements necessary for physicians to participate in the new MIPS program. The MIPS will combine certain parts of, and essentially replace, the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), the Value-based Payment Modifier, and the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) incentive program. The new quality program will be a single program based on quality, resource use, clinical practice improvement, and the meaningful use of EHR. 
 
The webinar will provide information on the proposed MIPS implementation parameters, as well as provide information on the effect the new MIPS program will have on ID physicians. The webinar will be held in collaboration with Hart Health Strategies. Registration for IDSA members and their staff is available here: Webinar Registration
