In an era of Value-based care, physicians are expected to care for patients under the pressure of constantly changing claims and coding demands, rising practice overhead and increasing quality and reporting burdens, all while facing shrinking reimbursements and rising restrictions and penalties. 2021 – The year the Medicare and CHIP Reconciliation ACT (MACRA) ends fee-for-service reimbursement as we know it.
50% of physicians who haven’t even heard of upcoming MACRA regulations as of July, 2016.
87% of solo practitioners are expected to be penalized under new CMS value-based payment models.
Premier offers the expertise, consolidated, efficient management structure, and successful accountable care track record that helps physicians excel. Our ACO care model helps physicians to work smarter, not harder, and provides the tools and resources needed to nurture healthier patients and profitable practices.
