ASA Publishes MACRA Modules for Members
ASA members and their practices who wish to learn more about the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) can view and download nine PowerPoint discussions on the ASA website. The information contained in these new modules is based on information from the Centers from Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS’s) Final Rule on MACRA’s Quality Payment Programs. These new modules are updates from previous modules that were based on the proposed rule. The nine new modules include information on how to determine whether you’re an eligible clinician in the program, how the different components of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) apply to you and your practice and if you may want to consider participation in an Alternative Payment Model (APM).
The modules are in part of a larger ASA effort to educate members on MACRA and provide members with the tools to have the best opportunity to succeed.
