On Oct. 14 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released detailed regulations for implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). With so many changes to the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) track, we at Health Catalyst have heard many questions and comments. This is understandable, as the substantial 962-page proposal has grown to the 2,398-page final rule.

With the help of Dorian DiNardo and Dr. Bryan Oshiro, Bobbi is back to share her insights into the MACRA final rule and its implications for providers in a highly engaging question and answer format. Bobbi and the team will share the most frequently asked questions they have received since the announcement and their answers to them.
