by | May 22, 2018 | News

EAST LANSING, Mich., May 22, 2018 – Medical practices working with Medical Advantage have achieved outstanding 2017 MIPS composite performance scores. Practices working with Medical Advantage average score was 88 out of a possible 100 points. Further, 91 percent of these practices qualified for the exceptional performance bonus under the MACRA program.

“We take a personalized, one-on-one approach to helping practices with the MACRA program”, explained Paul MacLellan, CEO Medical Advantage. “We assess a practice, understand its unique characteristics, and then identify the best opportunities for optimum performance in MACRA.”

Medical Advantage works with physicians to avoid penalties, earn incentives and grow practice revenue under MACRA. Dedicated MACRA experts offer personalized support with selecting quality measures, access to tools, best practices, and more.

“Succeeding in MACRA is not impossible, but doing it on your own is challenging,” said Beth Hickerson, healthcare transformation consultant with Medical Advantage. “Our consultants work with each practice to establish an action plan and then provide support through monthly check-ins. We lead practices where they need to go to achieve results in MACRA’s Merit Based Incentive Payments System (MIPS).”

For the past decade, the U.S. healthcare industry has been undergoing unprecedented change in how it reimburses healthcare providers. In 2015, Congress passed MACRA to accelerate healthcare providers transition from a fee-for-service payment to value-based reimbursement. Depending on a physician’s compliance with the MACRA program, he or she may receive a positive, neutral, or negative Medicare payment adjustment in subsequent years.
