Challenges and Opportunities for Orthopedists under MACRA
In the Medscape Orthopedics Lifestyle Report 2017, orthopedists listed rules and regulations as one of the most challenging parts of their jobs. As Medicare Part B reimbursement is evolving from fee-for-service to fee-for-value, the rules outlined under the Medicare Access and CHIP Re-authorization Act (MACRA) will not help to ease that burden, as the reporting requirements continue to evolve and the quest to improve is essential to succeed.
MACRA provides two routes to participate – the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM). Most specialists will choose to report for MIPS, but what challenges are orthopedists specifically facing and how much is on the line in terms of incentive dollars?
