Have you heard about MACRA?

MACRA is the law that congress passed regarding Medicare in 2015. I found out about the new legislation a couple weeks ago. And, I have to tell you guys, I am not excited. 

There are going to be a LOT of changes coming for providers once the law goes into effect in 2019 and small practices will be bearing a considerable burden. 

But you all know that I would not be posting scare tactic articles here about something that won’t happen for over two years. So, the statistics that determine whether your providers (or you, if you are a provider) are going to get penalized up to 9% are going to be drawn from self reported data from 2017.

That means that in order not to be penalized in 2019, you and your providers need to make changes as of the 1st of the year. In two months.

New Generation and our sister company, J&J Billing, Inc. are putting on four free one hour trainings. Normally we charge for our webinars, but it is so important that providers know about MACRA and the changes that are coming, that we are waiving the fee. So, fill this form out, and fax it back to me and I will make sure that the online classes we schedule will accommodate everyone .

I will post the final schedule on the blog once we have all the feedback. You will need to email me to sign up for the class. I am working on a fancy-pants sign up sheet for my classes, but it is still quite a work in progress. I am a very good biller and a very bad coder. 

Seriously people, print the form, send it back. This is free. You NEED this information. Tell your friends.
