MACRA is taking the healthcare market by storm.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term, or aren’t quite sure what it is, kindly read this article from the CMS Website.
What MACRA means to my practice,... today.
Once MACRA has been fully initiated, private practitioners are going to find that they’ll be facing penalties ranging from -3% to -9% depending on their actual participation.
Make no mistake: The guidelines have been completed and published and the data which Medicare expects to be MACRA-ready will begin with your clinical encounters in January 2017.
What does this mean to me?
It means that unless your entire office is running paperless on an EMR / EHR solution which is both Meaningful Use 2 (MU2) certified, planning on adopting MU3 once it’s available, and it meets the necessary requirements to meet the MACRA Clinical Data Reporting requirements, you should contact us immediately. We say this with all seriousness, because we don’t want you getting surprised when you notice lesser reimbursements checks coming to your office due to no MACRA participation or readiness.
