IDSA Webinar Explains CMSís Proposed New Payment Program
Even if you missed IDSA’s June 7 webinar, you can still learn about Medicare’s proposed regulation for a new payment program for physician services—and what it means for ID physicians. 
 
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently published a proposed rule for payment reform changes as mandated by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015. The proposed regulation (PDF) outlines the requirements for physicians to participate in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), a new program required by MACRA. MIPS will be based on quality, resource use, clinical practice improvement, and EHR use, taking the place of stand-alone programs such as the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), the Value-based Payment Modifier, and the Meaningful Use Program.

Find out what you need to know about the proposed implementation parameters and the effect the new MIPS program will have on ID physicians. A recording of the webinar, held with Hart Health Strategies, is now available on the IDSA website.
