MACRA Resource Center

The Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act, or MACRA, is a law passed in 2015 to change the way Medicare pays clinicians. Previously, Medicare paid clinicians for the number, or volume, of services they provided. MACRA transitions Medicare from paying for volume to instead paying for value.

This represents a move toward rewarding efficient, patient-centered care by paying clinicians based on well they care for their patients. That includes keeping people healthy, delivering high-quality care and controlling costs. That’s why MACRA specifically offers credit to recognized NCQA PCMHs & PCSPs.

This is where you will find all of NCQA’s materials on MACRA. Explore today and learn how you and your practice can get rewarded for delivering high-quality, patient-centered care.
