Dear COCSA Members,

As part of COCSA's continuing efforts to educate the Chiropractic Leaders of our State Association Members, COCSA would like to announce the first COCSA Leadership Lunch and Learn Webinar. It is our goal to provide our members with a variety of Leadership Lunch and Learns to our states on a variety of important and critical topics.

INVITED Guests for this webinar : COCSA State Association Executive Directors and State Member Association Presidents/Incoming Presidents only.

COCSA Leadership Lunch and Learn Session: "Leadership Overview of MACRA Law: the New Payment System for Medicare" - presented by Best Practices Academy.

Wednesday, August 10, 2016
1:00 - 2:00 pm EST

Check out this great YouTube video about the webinar from Dr. Scott Munsterman with Best Practices Academy.  

As many of you may already know, on April 27, 2016, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to implement key provisions of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), bipartisan legislation that replaced the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate formula for clinician payment in Medicare with a new approach to paying clinicians for the value and quality of care they provide. The proposed rule would implement these changes through the unified framework called the “Quality Payment Program,” which includes two paths: The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs). 

The proposed rule, to be finalized sometime in November of this year, predicts 98.4% of chiropractors will experience a negative payment adjustment. This is largely due to the lack of success in PQRS reporting and CEHRT adoption by the chiropractic profession. Now with the new payment system beginning in January of 2017, performance and payment will hinge on reporting measures in four key categories. 

There is no doubt the new Quality Payment Program by Medicare will challenge our profession, especially as commercial payers look to Medicare’s lead in this area. Fortunately one of our business partners, Best Practices Academy, has key experts in this area. BPA has offered to provide a Leadership Overview of the MACRA Law on Wednesday, August 10th at 1:00pm EST. In addition, we will be discussing an opportunity BPA has agreed to provide to COCSA and its members to help educate your members on this transformation and how they may best succeed in the months and years ahead.

Thank you again to Dr. Munsterman and BPA for their continued efforts to educate the chiropractic leaders and the profession. We appreciate all that you do! As a reminder this webinar is specifically for the Executive Directors and the Presidents or Incoming Presidents of the State Associations. 

Please put this on your calendars and we look forward to serving all of you with additional leadership lunch and learns.

Thank you all!
