are you ready for MACRA?

ASCO: Your Partner in Practice Transformation

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), which replaced the Sustainable Growth Rate formula for updates to the Medicare physician fee schedule, lays out far-reaching changes and an ambitious implementation schedule that will profoundly impact reimbursement to oncology practices throughout the United States.

ASCO is your partner in preparing for these changes and ensuring high-quality care for patients with cancer. We will provide a wide range of continually updated resources and tools that are designed to help practicing oncologists satisfy MACRA requirements and move toward a value-based practice environment. Bookmark this page and come back often, as we will post updates, new materials, and webinars as soon they become available.

If you have any questions or comments about MACRA implementation, please contact
