The ASCRS’s first webinar, "Socioeconomic Update: What the Future Holds," is now available as a CREST® module and is eligible for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
This module will discuss the importance of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 and the Medicare Access and CHIP Authorization Act (MACRA) of 2015, and explain why these two laws will continue to change physician reimbursement over the next five years and beyond. Educating our society members on the impact the MIPS and the APM systems of payment is important as they will directly impact physician reimbursement. With the knowledge gained from participating in this webinar, members can better prepare for the significant and impending changes.
- Explain the reason for changing physician reimbursement from Fee-for-Service to Value-Based Care.
- Recall the Merit-Based Incentive Payment Systems.
- Describe how CMS is currently moving toward more bundled payments through the Alternative Payment Models.
