The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) is a transformative law that will ultimately lead the American health care system away from a fee-for-service model and towards a new risk-bearing, value-based, coordinated care models. MACRA will drive payment and delivery reform across the payer mix for the foreseeable future in an attempt to lessen the overall burden of ever-climbing healthcare costs in the US.

Anyone who bills Medicare Part B for more than $30,000 or sees more than 100 Medicare Part B patients must participate in MIPS/MACRA. Eligible Clinicians include: MD, DO, NP, PA, CNS, CRNA.
