You Have MACRA Questions? TMA Has Answers

You’re welcome. We were thinking about you.

We knew you’ve been looking high and low for a comprehensive set of educational tools to help you figure out the MACRA Quality Payment Program (QPP) payment rules for the new pathways: the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and alternative payment models (APMs). 

(By the way, MACRA = the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015.) 

So when the Physicians Advocacy Institute (PAI), in collaboration with health care consulting firm Healthsperien, asked us to work closely with them and other state medical associations to create a free MACRA Quality Payment Program (QPP) education initiative, we jumped at the chance. (TMA is a charter member of the PAI.)

Earlier this month, that resource center went live online. It includes: 

  • Recorded webinar tutorials available on-demand at your convenience;
  • Summary and in-depth information on all aspects of the QPP, including a guide to acronyms, a guide to reporting mechanisms, and an explanation of how the QPP affects Medicare Part B payments;
  • A step-by-step guide for physicians on how to navigate the QPP’s MIPS and APM pathways; and 
  • A searchable Frequently Asked Questions section. 

“PAI is sharing this comprehensive array of resources free of charge to help any physician practice, regardless of its level of readiness or knowledge, assess its preparedness and determine the best approach to succeed under the MACRA QPP payment rules,” PAI said in a statement.

So click around, get lost in it, find out what you need to know. 

And don’t forget about the TMA MACRA Resource Center. It’s just one of the ways TMA will continue to update you with the latest information to help you succeed in the QPP.
