DeLoss will speak on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 which repealed the long standing Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) methodology, and in its place provides annual physician fee updates, establishes the Merit Based Incentive Payment System and incentivizes physician participation in alternative payment models. This session will provide the important details of these programs, the timing of their implementation, and how they will impact physician payments.
