The Quality Payment Program (QPP) within the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 will bring a great deal of change in how Medicare will pay for health care services provided to Part B beneficiaries. It is very important that ASA members learn as much as they can about the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APMs) so they can demonstrate the value of their services. You need to do this so, at minimum, you can avoid future payment penalties and optimally earn positive adjustments to Medicare payments. The information you will read in other articles in this edition of our ASA Monitor and the resources you can find on our website at will help you in that regard. However, many aspects of the current payment system will stay in place. Unlike the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula, MACRA did not repeal them. I will cover two such issues in this column.
