MACRA Advocacy

ASA continuously monitors legislation and regulatory proposals related to how MACRA will impact physician anesthesiologists and their practices. Keep up-to-date with ASA Advocacy by following us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ASAGrassroots/ and @ASAGrassroots on Twitter.

ASA advocacy on MIPS includes a number of actions including, but not limited to, advocating for reducing physician burden by simplifying program complexity, stabilizing program regulations from year to year and engaging CMS on appropriate physician anesthesiologist attribution in the program. For the APM pathway, ASA has been hard at work influencing key stakeholders to ensure anesthesiologists have opportunities to participate and earn the benefits of participating in advanced alternative payment models.
