    7 things physicians need to know about MACRA proposed rule

     

    1. This rule applies only to physician practices and to Medicare

    For now, only physician offices—not hospitals—are governed by MACRA rules. In addition, this program only applies to payments physicians receive from Medicare. Medicaid is not included.

     

    2. Performance data from 2017 will determine payment in 2019

    With Medicare payments or penalties under MACRA being handed out starting in 2019, that can feel like a long time away. But it’s closer than many physicians may realize.

    Keeping to tradition, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) plans to use data collected in 2017 to determine payment adjustments for 2019.

      It will likely take 1 high salaried or 2 low salaried employees to do the required documentation for this nonsense. Another nail in the coffin for private practice. However, even very large group practices will struggle to meet these requirements.
