AMA Provides SGR Repeal Bill Summary, Timeline

The American Medical Association's legislative counsel has prepared documents on the recently enacted Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), also known as HR 2.  

The detailed section-by-section summary of the new law offers a breakdown of physician and provider payment, the Medicare program, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, offsets, and other information. The timeline is a chronological list that shows when some of the major provisions will take effect, including the new Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the new "Measure Development Plan," which sets priorities for new quality measures for MIPS and alternative payment model quality reporting.
