MACRA legislation replaces the repealed SGR payment formula and consolidates the set of reportable quality metrics that will drive the 2019 Medicare peer performance-based payment system. However, the 2019 payment adjustment is based on 2017 performance. Practices can compete individually or can join a CMS approved Advanced Alternative Payment Model (A-APM) program.

CHI Saint Joseph Health Partners is your Kentucky-based resource for MACRA

For information about the upcoming changes, read through the information/links below and check back as we update this information with the latest news about MACRA.  To learn more about how CHI Saint Joseph Health Partners can help, simply contact us at 844.804.8725 or online at How To Join. A CHI Saint Joseph Health Partners representative will contact you soon.
