Earlier today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released its final rule implementing the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). Physician practices across the country now have a busy two and a half months trying to get ready to begin collecting and reporting data on Jan. 1.
TMA will continue to work with CMS and the Texas congressional delegation to rewrite and reform many of the problems we identified in CMS’ draft regulations. Although CMS granted physicians a reprieve from 2019 Medicare payment penalties if they attempt to report some data next year, practices still face a host of decisions about what path they will take to try to comply with the biggest change in Medicare payment policies in more than a generation.
TMA is here to provide guidance:
- Start with our members-only Five-Step Checklist for MACRA Readiness.
- Sign up for our new statewide seminar series, MACRA and Medicare — Get Clarity and Direction, beginning Oct. 25.
- Attend the Texas Quality Summit, Nov. 18-19.
- Check out these on-demand recordings from our MACRA lunchtime webinars:
- Contract with TMA Consulting Services for a MACRA readiness assessment of your practice.
