    Top 8 things doctors need to know about 2018 MACRA proposed rule

     

     

     

    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released its proposed rule for year two of the Quality Payment Program portion of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), affecting who’s eligible and how quality scores are calculated.

    “We’ve heard the concerns that too many quality programs, technology requirements, and measures get between the doctor and the patient,” CMS Administrator Seema Verma said in a press release. “That’s why we’re taking a hard look at reducing burdens. By proposing this rule, we aim to improve Medicare by helping doctors and clinicians concentrate on caring for their patients rather than filling out paperwork.”       

    Here’s what you need to know about the proposed changes for 2018, which would impact payment in 2020. The rule will be finalized later this fall after a 60-day comment period by the public.
