TMA Signs on to Letter Calling for Congress to Improve MACRA

June 3, 2019


The Tennessee Medical Association has joined the American Medical Association and a number of other state medical societies and national healthcare advocacy groups in calling for Congress to make further refinements to improve MACRA.

In a letter submitted to congressional leaders this week, the signatories call for Congress to replace the 2020-2025 physician payment update freeze with positive payment adjustments for physicians, extend the Advanced APM bonus payments for an additional six years, and implement several additional technical improvements to MACRA.
