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.
