Your “Pick” at GSCPA—PYA Offers Updates on MACRA/QPP and Recent Accounting Standards
The Peach State was ripe with timely conversation as industry leaders discussed a wide range of issues at the Georgia Society of Certified Public Accountants’ 2018 Health Care Conference February 23. Talking points included updates and trends in the legal, regulatory, audit, and operational realms of financial healthcare.
PYA Principals Doug Arnold, Lori Foley, and David McMillan offered 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 explained 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 co-presented at the conference. Their presentation, “MACRA, MIPS, & APMs: Considerations for 2018 and Beyond,” provided an overview of QPP’s second performance year finalized in the 2018 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ QPP and Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. They highlighted changes from last year’s program requirements, identified key areas of immediate focus relevant to financial risks and outcomes, and provided insights into 2019 planning.
