MAG among 100+ groups urging flexibility in CMS approach to QPP 

The Medical Association of Georgia is one of more than 100 physicians’ advocacy organizations that signed a letter that the American Medical Association (AMA) sent to Congressional leaders to urge them to enact legislation that will ensure that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has the “flexibility [it needs] to continue [its] transitional approach to the implementation of the Quality Payment Program (QPP).” The letter was sent to leaders of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce as well as the chairs and ranking members of the House Ways and Means and Senate Finance committees.

The groups are calling for lawmakers to extend “the existing flexibility in the MACRA statute that CMS is currently using for an additional three years so that the agency may move forward as the necessary program elements are put in place.”
