View MACRA Resource Links
MACRA legislation replaces the repealed SGR payment formula and consolidates the set of reportable quality metrics that will drive the 2019 Medicare peer performance-based payment system. However, the 2019 payment adjustment is based on this coming year’s (2017) performance. Practices can compete individually or can join one of several CMS approved organizations, such as the KentuckyOne Health Partners Accountable Care Organization (ACO) which is an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (A-APM).

KentuckyOne Health Partners is your Kentucky-based resource for MACRA
