MACRA Implementation: A Review of CMS’ Final Rule

WEBINAR:  November 30, 2016 | 12:15pm - 1:15pm

This webinar offers 1 free AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for CMA members. This webinar is also available to nonmembers for $99.*

This webinar will provide an overview of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Payment Program, authorized by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).  Our speaker will provide key details and dates you’ll need to know and information about how to prepare for the start of the program on January 1, 2017. We will also review key elements of the Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) pathway and provide a comparison to the other pathway in the program, Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APM). Finally, we will review the flexibilities clinicians have to pick how and when they begin this program during the 2017 transitional year, and review available resources currently available for clinicians seeking technical support.

Featured Presenter: Ashby Wolfe, M.D., MPP, MPH, is a board-certified family physician who currently serves as Chief Medical Officer for California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii and the Pacific Territories for CMS. Her focus is on implementation of the many facets of the Affordable Care Act and its role in providing access to high-quality care and improved health at a lower cost.

State Offering Webinar on Coordinated Care Initiative

The California Department of Health Services is offering two more educational webinars on the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) in July. It is important to note that these webinars will NOT be recorded or available for on-demand playback.


Physicians and their staff in affected counties are encouraged to participate in one of the live webinars, Tuesday, July 23 or Tuesday, July 30.

 

The initiative, also known as "CalMediConnect," was authorized by the Assembly in July 2012 in an effort to save money and better coordinate care for the state's low-income seniors and persons with disabilities. The program begins with a three-year demonstration project that will transition more than 450,000 of the state's dual eligible beneficiaries - those eligible for both Medicare and Medi-Cal - into managed care plans.

 

Enrollment begins no sooner than January 2014 in 8 counties (Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino).

 

Physicians, other providers and their staff are invited to participate in one of the July webinars:

  • Tuesday, July 23 at 6:00pm (Click here to register)
  • Tuesday, July 30 at 5:00pm (Click here to register)

Each webinar will include a 30 minute overview of the program, including continuity of care provisions, and 30 minutes of Q&A. Note that the content of the overview will be the same on both dates. Additional webinars will be scheduled as enrollment nears.
