The new Quality Payment Program, authorized under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) will go into effect January 1, 2017. The new payment scheme will greatly change how Medicare pays health professionals and has profound implications for the field of geriatrics given that Medicare is the primary insurance for the patient population that geriatrics health professionals care for – older adults. Clinicians that bill under Medicare will need to be up to date on the two offered pathways to participate – the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (called MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (called APMs). This webinar provides attendees with the expertise and guidance around these options and how to successfully participate in the first year of this program.
Please note that there were some technical difficulties during the live webinar that caused the introduction to be cut off from the recording. The recorded webinar starts at the beginning of the content presentation.
This webinar offers 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credit.
