AMA Offers New Webinars on MACRA

The AMA is offering several educational opportunities beginning Nov. 21 to help physicians understand the requirements of the new Quality Payment Program (QPP) that was created by MACRA.

The sessions have been scheduled to give physicians an understanding of what the final rule means for their practice and what they need to do as part of the QPP. Webinars are scheduled for: 

Nov. 21, 6 pm – 7:30 pm Central Time
Dec. 1, 5:30 pm – 8 pm Central Time                       

Dec. 6, 7 pm – 8:30 pm Central Time

Dec. 10, 11 am – 1:30 Central Time                                     

Although the new Medicare quality payment program created by the 2015 MACRA law doesn’t take effect until 2019, physician practices are urged to prepare now. Performance on quality and other metrics in 2017 will serve as the basis for Medicare payments in 2019.  

To help members understand the new Medicare changes, the MMA has a comprehensive set of resources online. The MMA also offers a no cost, in-person presentation by a staff expert to clinic leadership.
