MACRA Tip of the Week: ASCRS•ASOA Continues to Add New Resources to the MACRA Center Website

ASCRS•ASOA members have exclusive access to ophthalmology-focused resources to help them understand and succeed in the program through the MACRA Center page. The site includes detailed guides on each of the categories of MIPS, MACRA FAQs, MACRA Top Tips, 2017 performance period options, MIPS scoring, advanced alternative payment models, podcasts, and links to archived material. Most importantly, this site is continually updated with new information and resources. Recently, we added the MIPS Overview for Ophthalmic Practices, an infographic guide to illustrate what physicians are responsible for reporting, and how they will be scored. This fall, the 2018 Quality Payment Program (QPP) Year 2 final rule, which implements MACRA, will be released. ASCRS•ASOA will be posting new resources to the MACRA Center to help members understand their requirements for 2018. We recommend members bookmark this page, and check it regularly to keep up to date on the latest news and access new resources.
