Draft Rules Released for MACRA, Are You Covered?

There are concerns that Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is  responding to about the burdens of complying with multiple quality programs and competing deadlines by easing some MACRA requirements in the 2018 proposed MACRA rule.  This ruling was released this week.

 

The proposed rule carries out the 2015 law that seeks to overhaul the payment of doctors, and focuses on tying reimbursement to quality measures. The proposed rule provides for additional flexibilities as providers continue to transition into the Quality Payment Program, including:

 

  • Implementation of virtual groups for small practices
  • The option to use electronic health record (EHR) technology certified to the 2014 Edition for the 2018 performance period
  • Additional pathways in submitting the measures and activities associated with the performance categories

 

The 2018 proposed rule also allows physician offices with under $90,000 in Medicare revenue, or fewer than 200 unique Medicare patients per year, to be exempt from the law.
