In critical areas such as health-system overhaul, insurance competition and cutting regulatory burdens, AMA member physicians have made their mark in 2017.
The AMA estimates more than 97% of eligible clinicians will avoid a 2020 Medicare pay penalty based on their 2018 Quality Payment Program participation.
HHS needs to issue detailed clarification of reported directive to restrict language in the agency’s budget documents.
To meet the 2017 reporting deadline, physicians must report on at least one patient and one measure by Dec. 31 and submit to Medicare no later than Feb. 28 to avoid a payment penalty in 2019.
All physicians should be able to succeed under MACRA. You can still take part in the Quality Payment Program this year.
