16-No to MACRA

Take Action Now!

Say NO to proposed MACRA rule!!


 Here's the deal...


Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA)

of 2015 repeals the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) methodology for updates to the physician

fee schedule (PFS) and replaces it with a new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)

for eligible clinicians or groups under the PFS. This proposed rule would establish the MIPS, a

new program for certain Medicare-enrolled practitioners.  This is NOT good for doctors!
