Quality Payment Program: Overview, Updates and Potential Impacts
In 2015, the Medicare and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) was signed into law, which overhauled the way physicians are paid by putting a higher priority on quality of care delivery. After the first year of implementation, has the legislation created the impact that was anticipated? Join PQA on Tuesday, February 27th at 1:00 PM ET to hear speaker Jim Scott, President and CEO of Applied Policy, provide an update on the Quality Payment Program. During his presentation, he'll share an overview of the program, changes that are happening in the second year, and some of the potential implications the newly passed Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 will have.
PQA members and current task force, panel, and
team members are invited to sign up now for this informative, complimentary webinar. Check system requirements.
