UNDERSTANDING MACRA:

What Is It, When Is It, and What Does It Mean for Communities?

What is MACRA? It’s the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015.

The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI) and the Kentuckiana Health Collaborative (KHC) are offering a conference to explain it to the healthcare community. The traditional fee-for-service payment model
has proven to be a barrier for achieving payment reform, failing to provide the right tools and incentives to improve the way care is delivered and to improve health outcomes. Congress made important progress in removing this barrier through passage of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), which reforms how physicians are paid and advances payment systems that reward value, rather than volume, of care.

For these critical reforms to have their desired impact on nationwide health care delivery, however, they must be implemented in a manner that makes success widely attainable and sustainable. This unprecedented transformation must be implemented in a manner that provides practical and digestible information tailored to the unique needs of communities and marketplaces throughout the country.
