The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of
2015 permanently repealed the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR). Under
MACRA, nearly all physicians will have to choose between one of two paths of
the Quality Payment Program (QPP): (1) Merit-Based Incentive Payment System
(MIPS), which consolidates existing Medicare fee-for-service physician
incentive programs such as Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value-based
Modifier (VM) and Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Record (EHR) or (2) participation
in an Advanced Alternate Payment Model (APM).
Program (QPP) Information Center – Offers tools and resources to
help you and your practice prepare for and navigate through the two tracks -
MIPS or APMs.
Delivery Reform Resources & News – Offers Advocacy Now news,
Comment/Congressional Letters, AAOS Member webinars and important resources
