CMS Fact Sheet on Proposed MACRA Regulation

May 13, 2016

In response to concerns raised by the AMA and others, CMS has issued a small practice fact sheet that outlines aspects of the proposed MACRA regulation that were intended to address the needs of smaller physician practices. In particular, the document explains that the rather alarming impact table projecting a disproportionately severe impact on solo physicians and small groups is based on misleading data.  

 

AMA staff are working to identify refinements that could be made to the proposed rule to provide further relief and assistance to smaller practices. Those will be included in formal comments that will be submitted to CMS in late June.
