Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA)

Effective January 1, 2017, MACRA replaced the current Medicare reimbursement schedule with a new payment framework. MACRA also replaced the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), the EHR Incentive Program (Meaningful Use), and the Value-Based Payment Modifier (VM) program.

CSMS has developed this information page to help you prepare your practice for MACRA’s Quality Payment Programs, MIPS and APM.
