Government Advocacy

The Hill doesn’t have to be a climb if you can go straight to the facts.

Engage with a team that advocates on your behalf and translates complex regulations into focused updates on the latest health issues from Washington.


The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015, passed on April 14, 2016, repealed the flawed sustainable growth rate formula and set in motion a new future for Medicare payments including predictable, positive payment updates, as well as two new, separate pathways to value-based reimbursement: Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or Advanced Alternative Payment Models. Once the law was passed, CMS implemented details on MIPS reporting requirements and APM participation through rulemaking, which is updated annually. CMS calls MACRA the Quality Payment Program (QPP).
