Washington Update | Highlights of the Final MACRA Rule
Since Congress scrapped the formula for Medicare reimbursement in 2015, SVS has worked closely with legislators to shape the replacement rule, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) and ensure our members’ voices are heard on Capitol Hill.
With the release of the Final Rule, SVS is pleased to report that the agency listened to members’ concerns and made many changes to the Proposed Rule. SVS leaders, however, believe work remains to be done to improve the new Medicare reimbursement system, the Quality Replacement Program.
