The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) today welcomed components of a new proposed rule from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) Quality Payment Program (QPP) as containing several positive developments for rheumatology providers. Specifically, rheumatologists expressed support for CMS's proposals to increase the threshold for Merit-Based Incentive Payments System (MIPS) exemptions, to extend "Pick Your Pace" flexibility for another year and to delay electronic health records requirements. Additionally, the ACR supports keeping the cost performance category weighted at zero for another year beyond 2018.
