Why you should attend… The purpose of this activity is to prepare Nevada Physicians & Clinicians for the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) and Merit Based Incentive (MIPS) Payment System- Quality Payment Program that goes in to effect January 1, 2017. The program will highlight current Medicare payments for volume of services that are being replaced by payments for outcomes of care achieved through delivering higher quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of clinical practice, clinicians delivering higher value care- higher quality of care at lower cost- will receive higher reimbursements than those delivering lower value services, and current systems that do not adequately pay for coordination of care, clinical improvement activities, clinical information sharing, early preventive services and rapid access to care for those with higher needs but rather provides more incentives to deliver higher volume of discretionary procedures that marginally improve health and well being.
