From fee-for-service to MACRA

May 19, 2016

Merritt Hawkins logoWashington Hospital Services Industry Partner Merritt Hawkins has written an article exploring the topic of how Medicare will soon dramatically change the way in which it pays physicians. This article was published in the April 2016 issue of Practice Management magazine and traces health care reimbursement methods from the era of direct pay to emerging models mandated by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), including Medicare’s Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The article concludes with an analysis of how these payment models are likely to affect physician staffing and recruitment.
