Chart Your Course for MACRA Success


In April 2015, the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 ("MACRA") was passed, ending the Sustainable Growth Rate ("SGR") formula for determining Medicare payments for healthcare providers’ services. MACRA is intended to accelerate moving care delivery toward quality and value-based reimbursement models through the new Merit-Based Incentive Payment System ("MIPS") and incentive payments for participation in certain Alternative Payment Models ("APMs").
This law has a strict timeline to implement strategy to maximize possible incentive payments, improve care delivery and design, and successfully achieve efficiencies improving cost and quality that will go into effect 2019 based on the 2017 performance reporting period. The final details of the incentives for the new payment models were published in the final rule in November 2016. Practices should be implementing an optimum strategy in 2017.


Lucy Zielinski of the GE Healthcare Camden Group consulting team will deliver an overview of the legislative details of the new payment reform law and the implications of MACRA. She will also provide the necessary tools to successfully navigate through the next phase of participation for the Quality Payment Program, MIPS, and APMs.

  • Examine the incentives and penalties associated with MACRA
