What is MACRA and how does it affect providers?

MACRA is the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act. MACRA replaces the current Medicare reimbursement schedule with a new pay-for-performance program that’s focused on quality, value, and accountability. This new system, called the Quality Payment Program (QPP), repeals the Sustainable Growth Rate Formula and is made up of two participation tracks for payment—

  • Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)
  • Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs)

If you are a clinician that bills services under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, understanding the requirements and payment changes under MACRA is crucial. The steps you take today will hit your practice’s bottom line tomorrow.

The first measurement period for the Quality Payment Program began January 1, 2017.



Helping Practices Avoid Penalties & Capture Incentives

Miraca’s own health IT consultants have helped thousands of eligible clinicians and centers. Our certified advisors have provided comprehensive support for more than five years.

MIPS — Are you ready for the newest requirements?

If you’ve attested for CMS Quality Programs, are you ready for an audit—or trying to move forward after one?

Let Miraca’s health IT consultants help your practice with:

  • Registration
  • Workflow training on each measure
  • Ongoing report review for each EC (eligible clinician)
  • Attestation and audit support for each EC
  • HIPAA compliance
  • Security assessments

Quality — Understand which measures to report, options for reporting, and how to seamlessly embed quality data reporting into your practice.

Cost — Get help with avoiding penalties and analyzing your new QRUR report as the industry goes to a pay-for-performance model.

Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (CPIA) — Let Miraca help your practice select activities that easily align with new requirements and the workflow of your practice and the patients you serve.


Physician Compare Optimization — Ensure that your physicians are top-rated in your community. The new CMS Physician Compare website provides information for consumers. The site encourages consumers to make informed healthcare decisions. Through this, the site also creates explicit incentives for physicians to maximize their performance.

Both Physician Compare and MACRA scores will be published annually.

ASC Reporting — ASCs need to be ready to report the annual required data for ASC-6, 7, 8, 9 and 10, as well as complete a security risk assessment.

Our expert technical consultants have a wealth of experience:

  • Assisted more than 600 practices
  • 100% success in 2015 & 2016 with clients who have been audited by CMS!

The structured data from EMA and the Miraca interface simplifies this process, which has saved us thousands of dollars in penalties, and allowed us to qualify for the full incentives every year the program has been in effect.
