The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) ended the Sustainable Growth Rate formula and established the Quality Payment Program, improving Medicare by helping doctors and other clinicians focus on care quality and making patients healthier. If you participate in Medicare Part B, the Quality Payment Program provides new tools and resources to help you give your patients the best possible care.
This listening session is an opportunity for stakeholders to learn about proposed policy for the Quality Payment Program. Participants are encouraged to review the proposed rule prior to the listening session.
If time allows, we will open the lines for feedback. Note: feedback received during the listening session will not be considered 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 August 21, 2017.
Target Audience: Part B Fee-For-Service clinicians and practice managers; state and national associations that represent healthcare providers; and other stakeholders.
