PYA to Provide Complimentary Educational Series on New Medicare Physician Value-Based Payments

This fall, PYA’s four-part educational series will provide a straightforward, practical explanation of CMS’ physician value-based payment initiatives and will highlight what you need to do now to ensure success.

Beginning January 1, 2015, a provider’s payments from Medicare may be increased, decreased, or remain neutral depending on the provider’s scores on quality, efficiency, and outcome measures. More importantly, these scores will impact providers’ reputations with patients, payers, and other providers. For these reasons, providers need to understand and take action to address the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) latest initiatives.

The four-part series, Physician Value-Based Payments—What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You, will highlight steps providers should take now to ensure success.
