Mr. Wolfe will provide a straight-forward, practical explanation of key provisions and options for clinicians and health care leaders as they navigate the 2017 transition year and beyond.

Objectives of The Presentation
  • What Medicare is trying to achieve with MACRA
  • Which provider types will be impacted
  • Why calendar year 2017 is very important for future payments

  • What can be done to take pro-active steps prior to the first reporting period?
Regardless of your knowledge of MACRA, you'll leave this webinar with all you need to get started and be successful.

Why Should you Attend
Going forward, clinicians and health care leaders need to be developing strategies so they can position their organizations for financial success under the new Quality Payment Program.

Beginning in 2017, CMS has started rewarding clinicians for their delivery of high-quality patient care through one of two pathways: (1) payment of incentives for participation in Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs); or (2) application of a positive or negative adjustment pursuant to the clinician's performance under the new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

CMS is allowing clinicians to pick their pace of participation for the 2017 performance year. They will have three flexible options to submit data under MIPS and a fourth option to join an Advanced APMs in order to ensure they will not trigger a negative payment adjustment in 2019.

This webinar will focus on the Quality Payment Program, its pathways and potential options for clinicians as they navigate the Quality Payment Program during the 2017 transition year and beyond.
