SGR > MACRA
On April 27, 2016, CMS issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to put in place key parts of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). MACRA, bipartisan legislation, replaces the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate formula by paying clinicians for the value and quality of care they provide.
