On Friday, October 14th, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare (CMS) released the highly anticipated final rule for the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2105 (MACRA). MACRA is the repeals the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula that determined Medicare Part B reimbursement rates for physicians and replaces it with new ways for paying for care. Further, this also ended the need for reoccurring legislative adjustments every year for the payment rates, often called “doc fixes.” Under MACRA, participating providers will be paid based on the quality and effectiveness of care – moving payment from value, not volume. These will be done through two value-based payment programs; Merit Based Incentive Payments System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APM).
