MACRA Resources



MACRA—the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015—will implement the most extensive collection of changes to Medicare payment methodologies since RBRVS was introduced in 1992. The Idaho Medical Association is here to help. As we await the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) releasing its final rule on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), here are some resources to help you get ready. Check back often as we add new information. If you have questions, please contact the IMA Reimbursement Department at 208-344-7888 or email IMA Reimbursement Director Teresa Cirelli, CPC, CPMA at teresa@idmed.org or Reimbursement Specialist Kim Burgen, CPC atkim@idmed.org.
