What does a Trump Administration mean for MACRA?
What does a Trump Administration mean for MACRA – and for you?
You may have heard about the recent Executive Order aimed at eliminating two government regulations for every new one proposed.
Understandably, the healthcare industry is wondering if Republicans’ desire to dismantle the Affordable Care Act will impact the new MACRA regulations that took effect as of January 1.
Should physicians continue tracking and reporting quality measures in order to be MACRA compliant, or should they wait to see what happens?
The short answer: stay on track with MACRA.
While this Administration may be unpredictable in some respects, one thing you can count on is that value-based reimbursement is here to stay.
Unlike the ACA, MACRA was passed with bipartisan support – including by Secretary Price – and little drama. In fact, many of the concepts behind MACRA originated with Republican members of Congress more than 10 years ago.
In addition, the changes in MACRA are meant to streamline programs within CMS, which is a goal of the Trump administration for all government agencies.
And we can’t ignore the fact that value-based reimbursement is a focus of the private sector as well.
While we may not know exactly what healthcare reform will look like in the coming years, one thing we can safely predict is that MACRA isn’t going anywhere.
