AHA launches online MACRA resource


The American Hospital Association has launched an online resource to assist hospital and physician leaders with changes to the physician payment system under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act.

MACRA was enacted in 2015 to replace the flawed sustainable growth rate. It implements new physician quality and value-based payment programs in 2019.

"Hospitals that employ physicians directly may bear some cost from implementation of and ongoing compliance with the new physician performance reporting requirements, as well as be at risk for any payment adjustments," according to the AHA.

The AHA's online resource includes a number of tools to help with the physician payment transaction as well as legislative and background information on MACRA. The online resource can be accessed here.
