On April 27, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a notice of proposed rulemaking for the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). Currently, Medicare measures the value and quality that physicians and other clinicians provide through a patchwork of programs. In the MACRA legislation, the U.S. Congress streamlined these programs into a single framework to help clinicians transition to payments based on value from payments based on volume. The proposed rule would implement changes through this unified framework known as the Quality Payment Program. SIS staff are reviewing the rule and will submit comments as appropriate.

For more information on the MACRA proposed rule, review the press release and visit the webpage.
