Alternative Payment Models
In April 2015, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) became law. The law:
- Repeals the sustainable growth rate (SGR) methodology for determining updates to the Medicare physician fee schedule
- Establishes annual positive or flat fee updates for 10 years and institutes a two-track fee update beginning in 2019.
- Establishes the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) that consolidates existing Medicare quality programs.
- Establishes a pathway for physicians to participate in an Alternative Payment Model (APM).
