MACRA MIPS/APM Update eNewsletter #6

MACRA Implementation Emphasizes Specialty Collaboration
The passing of the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) was greeted with relief over its repeal of the sustainable growth rate, but its provisions outlining reimbursement models have raised questions and concerns. In this exclusive interview, Andy Slavitt, acting administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, discusses alternative payment models, outlines what resources are available for practices, and provides an overview of the three options practices have for participation in the Quality Payment Program. Slavitt was interviewed via email by Urology Times Clinical Practice Board member Brian R. Stork, MD, a urologist in group practice in Muskegon, MI. For additional questions from this interview, please see Dr. Stork's blog at www.drbrianstork.com. (Urology Times, November 8, 2016)
