The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) is a comprehensive change to how Medicare Part B pays for NP, CRNA, CNS, physician, and physician assistant services. These changes, which update the Physician Fee Schedule, include a new Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) as well as incentive payments for participation in alternative payment models (APMs). With payments in 2019 based off of 2017 data, it is imperative that providers learn how to operationalize MIPS into the practice. 


The goal of this webinar is to provide webinar participants with information necessary to start operationalizing the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System into their everyday clinical practice. Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Describe the components of the new Merit-Based Incentive Payment System
  • Determine what changes they will need to operationalize regarding quality, improvement activities, and advancing care information into their individual and group practices
  • Articulate how to incorporate evidence-based and practice-specific quality data into their practices
