AMA introduces new MACRA payment model evaluator

Area(s) of Interest: MACRA Payor Issues and Reimbursement Practice Management 

The American Medical Association (AMA) has introduced a new online tool to help physicians evaluate the various new Medicare payment models and improve their opportunities for success under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), which will go into effect in 2017.

The AMA Payment Model Evaluator is a free interactive tool offering initial assessments to help physicians determine how their practices will be impacted by MACRA. Once physicians or medical practice administrators fill out the online questionnaire, they will receive guidance on participating in the MACRA payment model that is best for them. They will also receive relevant educational and actionable resources. 

To help physicians understand the MACRA payment reforms, and what they can do now to start preparing for the transition, the California Medical Association (CMA) has created a MACRA resource center. There you will find an overview of MACRA, and a comprehensive list of tools, resources and information from CMA, AMA and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
