Stay tuned for this summer’s Medicare Physician Fee Schedule announcement; if these cuts aren’t reversed, I’ll tell you about your opportunity to raise your voice at regulations.gov.
Meanwhile, good news from the ACR’s RISE registry: Every single practice that submitted MIPS data to Medicare through RISE in MACRA’s first year (2017) not only avoided penalties for 2019 but also achieved exceptional bonus payments.
As I wrap up, I remind you to stay up to date and join the conversation to raise your voice by following me on Twitter. Even though I don’t have my own member of Congress yet (since I live in D.C.), I love giving you brief, actionable tweets about what you can do to exercise your First Amendment rights for rheumatology.
P.S.: Make a difference right now, and email Congress.
