CMS recently released a notice of proposed rule-making (NPRM) for program changes to the Quality Payment Program under MACRA (Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015). You can read the press release here.

The federal register version is over 1000 pages and there are some significant changes. Most of these changes will affect Year 2 of the Quality Payment Program, not the current Year 1 requirements.

Some of these changes are to bring the Quality Payment Program into alignment with the 21st Century Cures Act. This act was passed in December 2016 after the MACRA final rule was released.
