MACRA Positioning for Plans and Providers - Key Considerations for Providers and Health Plans
 
MACRA Positioning for Plans and Providers - Key Considerations for Providers and Health Plans
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) represents a tectonic shift in how providers are reimbursed for the services they provide to Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries. MACRA will have a major impact on the way most providers will be reimbursed for the care provided under Medicare Part B. MACRA permanently repeals the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR). Under MACRA, Part B reimbursement will be adjusted. An eligible clinician will see his or her Medicare reimbursement adjusted under one of the three following options: Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS); Partial qualifying participant; or Qualifying Participant. While on the surface this may seem like it has little to do with health plans in the commercial, Medicare Advantage, or Medicaid space, in reality MACRA has broad and wide-ranging implications for other payers. Furthermore, with MACRA implementation starting on January 1, 2017, payers need to understand how this soon-to-be implemented law will impact the market, and providers need to understand how this soon-to-be implemented law will impact their reimbursement.

In this presentation, the speaker will explore the dynamics of how MACRA will impact all parts of the healthcare market while explaining the key concepts surrounding how MACRA will impact provider reimbursement. Additionally, the speaker will explore specific strategies for how both providers, health systems, and health plans can leverage MACRA to its fullest effect to further organizational goals and reimbursement.  Please join us Thursday September 8th, 2016 at 1 PM Eastern as Milliman's Colleen Norris tackles these topics and more.
