Making MACRA Simple (As Possible) for Pennsylvania Physicians

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 – otherwise known as MACRA – is a complicated but important law for physicians and medical practices. It calls for a shift toward payment for physicians based on the quality of care provided rather than quantity of patients seen.

Failing to successfully participate in MACRA in 2017 could cost your medical practice money in 2019. PAMED has the following resources to help members:

Clinically Integrated Networks

PAMED has two webinars to help members learn what they need to be doing now for MACRA:

PAMED's Practice Options Initiative is in the process of creating clinically integrated networks (CINs) in several Pennsylvania markets. This will give practices the infrastructure they need to participate in MACRA while maintaining their autonomy.
