Area(s) of Interest: MACRA Payor Issues and Reimbursement Practice Management
On April 16, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), changing the health care financing system in the most significant and far-reaching way since the program's inception in 1965.
To help physicians understand MACRA payment reforms, and what they can do now to start preparing for the transition, the California Medical Association (CMA) has published an important checklist titled, “MACRA: What Should I Do Now to Prepare?”
The checklist is available in CMA's MACRA resource center at MACRA. There you will also find an overview of MACRA, and a comprehensive list of tools, resources and information from CMA, the American Medical Association and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Also available is CMA’s recent webinar, "MACRA: What Is CMA Doing to Improve It? What Steps Can You Take to Prepare Now?" This on-demand webinar is available free to CMA members.
