September Webinars Offer Q&A on MACRA, MIPS

Information you MUST have this fall to prevent income loss

Do the acronyms MACRA and MIPS have you confused? Do you know what you should do about data for physician reimbursement under Medicare? 

SVS members may be unaware that what they do TODAY will impact their payments in 2019. 

To help, the SVS will hold two town-hall webinars Sept. 12 and 19 on Medicare reimbursement and how it will affect members’ practices. Members are encouraged to submit questions on what has them perplexed or uncertain. The webinars will feature an open Q&A forum to provide information to those still struggling with how they will obtain the required data for Medicare reimbursement and comply with MACRA (Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015) and MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment System).

The first webinar will be at 1 p.m. Eastern Time, Tuesday, Sept. 12, and the second will be at 7 p.m. Eastern Time, Tuesday, Sept. 19. The moderators will be Jill Rathbun and Drs. Michael Stoner and Dr. Caitlin Hicks, of SVS’ Quality and Performance Measures Committee. Jill Rathbun is an SVS consultant and leading expert on quality and physician payment issues.

Participants need to submit their specific questions in advance at the end of the attached short survey. This will eliminate duplicate questions and assure complete answers can be prepared for presentation. View the materials from the July webinar on getting started with Medicare reimbursement for useful information on the topic.
