The California Medical Association (CMA) and California Health Information Partnership and Services Organization (CalHIPSO) are hosting a webinar on September 20 to answer physician questions about the new Medicare Quality Payment Program (QPP), established by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).
During the 2017 transition, eligible physicians and other clinicians have multiple options for participation. Choosing one of the three “pick your pace” options will ensure you do not receive a negative payment adjustment in 2019.
The webinar will review the pick your pace options and ensure you’re satisfying the requirements of your reporting category. It will also highlight resources available to help you avoid a negative payment adjustment and identify successful strategies to improving quality care.
CalHIPSO is also offering no-cost technical assistance to physician offices in California to help them select the right participation “pace” for their practices, navigate the new landscape, assess performance data and stay informed about the QPP.
Don’t wait until it’s too late! If your practice is attempting to earn a small bonus payment by reporting on a full 90 days, your performance period must begin no later than October 2, 2017. Contact CalHIPSO now to register for services and receive no-cost technical assistance.
