This no charge webinar will provide an overview of the new payment rules and potential opportunities created under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), along with practical guidance for palliative care providers to implement these changes. Presenters will also solicit participants’ questions, concerns, and suggestions to inform formal responses to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which are due June 27.

For readers who may not be familiar with CHIP, per the CMS website: “The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provides health coverage to eligible children, through both Medicaid and separate CHIP programs. CHIP is administered by states, according to federal requirements. The program is funded jointly by states and the federal government.
