CMS Simplifies MACRA Quality Reporting for Rural Practices

Posted by Diana Porter on Jun 29, 2017 2:00:00 PM


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released their final rule last week, easing some reporting requirements under MACRA for smaller practices. This is good news for many practices since more than 75% of doctors in decision-making roles say they are not prepared to meet MACRA quality reporting requirements, according to a survey by the AMA of 1,000 practicing physicians. Further almost a third of those who responded to the survey reported that they were “unlikely to meet” the basic standard to avoid penalty, according to a report in FierceHealthcare.

The proposed rule is intended to simplify reporting requirements and provide more support, especially for smaller, rural practices, with the ultimate goal to help healthcare providers focus more of their time on patient care and less on paperwork.
