Powers attorney Rebecca Burke will speak at an upcoming D.C. Bar Health Law Section program titled “Medicare Payments After MACRA and Beyond.”

During the 90-minute program, panelists will review the October 2016 final rule implementing provisions of the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, highlight how the Quality Payment Program relates to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ approach to payment innovation, and discuss the impact on the industry.

Rebecca, who has more than 30 years of experience in health law, will give an overview of the implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 from the physician/provider perspective, including discussion of critical issues in Merit-based Incentive Payment System, or MIPS, and Advanced Alternative Payment Models, known as APMs.

The panel of speakers will also include Nalini Pande, Esq., of Sappho Health Strategies, LLC; James Sharp, JD, MPH, of the CMS Innovation Center; and Orriel Richardson of Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as the moderator.

The event will be held at 12 p.m. Monday, March 6 at the D.C. Bar, located at 1101 K Street in Washington, DC. Doors for the program will open at 11:30 a.m. The program also will be available as a webinar/webcast here.
