DOH MACRA and Value Based Payment Webinar

The New York State Department of Health is pleased to announce a
webinar focused on The Medicare Access and Children’s Health Insurance
Program (CHIP) Reauthorization Act (MACRA) and its relationship to the
New York State Value Based Payment (VBP) program.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has introduced an
updated Quality Payment Program (QPP), which was included in the
Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). The final rule
posted in November of 2017 effects payments and reporting requirements
for approximately 600,000 providers across the U.S. This webinar will
serve as an introduction to the QPP requirements and highlights the
alignment between the QPP and the NYS Value Based Payment Program.
Additionally, through this discussion, the Office of Health Insurance
Programs would like to engage the participants in a conversation
concerning the ways MACRA could impact New York State providers and to
discuss future VBP and MACRA alignment efforts.
