MACRA: Incentives to Outcomes

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 has changed the future of Medicare Payments. With a new emphasis on quality and clinical improvement, MACRA has created two new reimbursement programs: the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), and Alternative Payment Models (APMs). In this 30 minute webinar, the experts at UCF's HealthARCH will explain the features of both programs, and how they will affect you and your practice. Click here to register.

The Lake-Sumter Board of Governors met on July 13, covering a lot of ground, voting in another new member, and making plans for organizational growth. They have thrown their support to the We Care of Lake County's upcoming Volunteer Gala; have started work on the annual EXPO which will feature a new Membership Directory publication to coincide with the event; offered support of the LSMS delegation to the FMA Annual Meeting in August; and are providing keen oversight of the Health Insurance Trust. This diverse and dedicated group is looking for new members and encourages interested physicians looking for a leadership position to contact Board President, Wendy Lavezzi, MD via the LSMS office, 352-742-9902.

We Care of Lake County is proud to present their Starry Night Volunteer Gala, set for Friday, August 25 at the beautiful Pavilion on the Lake in Tavares. Join us for a warm summer night of cool jazz, festive faire, open bar and fun auction. The dance floor is waiting! The night will honor special volunteer physicians, practices and other community partners who help We Care and their clients. To purchase tickets call 352-742-0021 Ext. 11, or We Care of Lake County was started by the Lake-Sumter Medical Society, whose volunteer specialty physicians provide care to indigent Lake County residents.
