In early October, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the much-anticipated Final Rule for implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).

ISMS actively worked to influence these regulations, and the Final Rule reflects accommodations for several of our concerns.

Next year is the first year of MACRA’s implementation timeline. Even though CMS is treating 2017 as a “transition year,” physicians still need to take action in order to avoid penalties in the future.
