Your “Pick” at GSCPA—PYA to Offer Updates on MACRA/QPP and Recent Accounting Standards

The Peach State will be ripe with timely conversation as industry leaders discuss a wide range of issues at the Georgia Society of Certified Public Accountants’ 2018 Health Care Conference February 23.  Talking points will include updates and trends in the legal, regulatory, audit, and operational realms of financial healthcare.

PYA Principals Doug Arnold, Lori Foley, and David McMillan will offer insights into Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs), and the impacts of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) established by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).

In his discussion, Doug will explain the new ASUs with particular emphasis on standards that:

  • Became effective for the 2017 calendar year.
  • Take effect in 2018.
  • Have been issued in 2017 and 2018, but are not effective until 2019 or thereafter.

Lori and David will co-present at the conference.  Their presentation, “MACRA: 2018 and Beyond,” will provide an overview of QPP’s second performance year finalized in the 2018 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ QPP and Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.  They will highlight changes from last year’s program requirements, identify key areas of immediate focus relevant to financial risks and outcomes, and provide insights into 2019 planning.

If you have questions about new ASUs or MACRA/QPP, or would like to request a speaker on these topics for your organization or event, contact one of our executives below at (800) 270-9629.
