In October 2016, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 repealed the Medicare Part B Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) payment system and adopted a new two-track system. MACRA’s Quality Payment Program (QPP) program is designed to streamline the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value- Based Modifier (VM) and Meaningful Use Incentive programs into one process.


The Medical Association of the State of Alabama has partnered with the Alabama Quality Assurance Foundation (AQAF), to help you make a decision that will impact your payment structure under MACRA. Part of AQAF’s contract with CMS is to provide training to clinicians on four categories of the Quality Payment Program and help every practice in Alabama choose its pace to participate so that you achieve a positive or neutral Medicare Part B Fee Schedule payment adjustment.


Technical assistance from the AQAF staff is always FREE! Learn more at http://alabamamedicine.org/physician-resource-pick-pace/.
