CMS Finalizes Historic Medicare Reform Law

October 20, 2016

The AMA’s Washington Office, has created two documents outlining major provisions of Medicare’s new Quality Payment Program (QPP) for physicians, which was created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).  The summary provides some detail of the various components of the final rule that was issued last week, and notes where key improvements were made to the policies set forth in the original proposed rule.  The "key changes in the QPP final rule" is a chart with more abbreviated descriptions of changes to the original proposed rule that were secured. 

These documents can be found on the AMA’s MACRA web page,  Additional material is in the process of being developed.
