MACRA – Why You Should Care.

Starting in 2019, Medicare will either reward you with extra income or will penalize you under MACRA.

This is a “net zero” plan which means there will be winners and there will be losers. It’s that simple.

We help you, and your practice, “win”.

  • What you can do?
  • How can you do it?
  • When should you do this?
  • What will the penalties cost you?
  • What investments could you make with the rewards?

The decision to actively participate in MACRA is yours. In a 10-minute call, we can discuss how reporting requirements create real upside opportunities and potential downside risks. It’s not too late to capitalize on the opportunities and to set yourself up for greater reward going forward.

In addition, ((MACRA. The roadmap to success)) was produced by Robyn McGann, BSN, MBA and Amy Wondolkowski, MS, OTR/L. This 50-minute educational video provides background and education about MACRA for your office manager and other business partners.
