The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) will impact how providers are reimbursed for Medicare services. This law will also have significant implications for provider systems and health plans. For example, it will accelerate the existing trend toward risk-based reimbursement for providers. As, what was once considered traditional "insurance risk," is spread to providers, it is essential for actuaries to have an understanding of MACRA and its implications.

In this webcast, the speakers will answer the question "What is MACRA?" and will discuss the actuarial considerations and implications for various stakeholders. The presenters will explore how organizations can prepare for MACRA and use this legislation to promote their organizational goals.
