CMA creates new resource summarizing Medicare incentive and penalty programs



December 17, 2014

Over the past few years, Congress has created a number of programs that call for payment incentives and reductions (referred to as “adjustments” by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) that impact physicians and their practices. At their inception, most of these programs offered an incentive to participate. However, most of the programs are entering their penalty phases, with complex and potentially conflicting requirements and implementation processes.


To help physicians understand how these programs will affect their practices, the California Medical Association (CMA) has created a new resource, “Medicare Incentive and Penalty Programs: What physicians need to know.” The resource is available free to CMA members in the resource library at CMA Store.
