MACRA Final Rule – NCQA’s Response
Final Rule is Released, NCQA’s Team of Policy Experts Are Dissecting and Reacting
WASHINGTON, DC— The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a leader in health care quality is pleased the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) Final Rule has been released.
Statement from NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane:
“NCQA has been focused on improving the quality of health care for more than a quarter century, and we know how hard this work is. Helping all doctors and other health care professionals make the transition to value-based care - whether they work in solo practices, small groups, or integrated health systems - is the challenge of our time."
"The overwhelming majority by which MACRA passed Congress last year reflects a bipartisan consensus that the way we pay for health care and the way that it’s organized is unsustainable and must change. This final rule is an important next step toward affecting that change and we are eager to play our role in helping make MACRA work for everyone."
NCQA’s team of health care policy experts are eager to answer questions:
- Michael S. Barr, MD, MBA, MACP, Executive Vice President, Quality Measurement and Research Group
- Frank Micciche, Vice President, Public Policy and Communications
- Paul Cotton, Director of Federal Affairs
