On February 29, 2012, CMS is hosting a National Provider Call to discuss the ACA requirement that CMS apply a value modifier to Medicare physician payments. The value modifier will compare the quality of care furnished to the cost of that care, starting with specific physicians and physician groups in 2015 and expanding to all physicians by 2017. This National Provider Call will include presentations from a panel of three private sector experts with experience in implementing physician-level pay-for-performance programs. The second call in the series, scheduled for March 14, will feature three additional private sector experts. Registration is required.
