AUSTIN, Texas, June 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), estimates that 73 percent of medical practices with less than 25 providers will pay Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) penalties. This does not have to happen to you.
Lynn Barr, CEO of Caravan Health, will present a one-hour webinar on how to be successful under MACRA and qualify for the upcoming Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) initiative from CMS through the Caravan Health MACRA/CPC+/ACO boot camp -- a simple and effective way for primary care providers to prepare their practices for these programs.
According to Ms. Barr, "MACRA and CPC+ can be very rewarding for patients and providers. The 9-week boot camp will quickly prepare practice staff to take full advantage of these opportunities. Practices receive all the training and tools they need at no cost."
Medical practices that qualify for the CPC+ program receive substantial up-front payments from CMS to underwrite improved patient care. Payments under this model encourage doctors to focus on health outcomes rather than the volume of visits or tests.
The webinar will take place Wednesday, June 15th at 9am PT / 11am CT. Log in to www.readytalk.com and enter participant code 5004771. An audio-only option is available by dialing 303.248.0285 and entering 5004771. Clinic leaders and independent primary care physicians are encouraged to attend. Rural Health Clinics and Federal Qualified Health Centers are not eligible for CPC+.
