Coding and Reimbursement



ASBMT Responds to CMS Proposed Rule on MACRA

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a proposed rule regarding key parts of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). MACRA will affect numerous laws, regulations and government programs affecting physician reimbursement through Medicare.

The MACRA Proposed Rule contained two components: Merit-Based Incentive Payment Systems (MIPS), which partially repeals the meaningful use program for EHRs along with alternative payment models.

The ASBMT leadership response to the proposed rule can be viewed here.
