MACRA and CBOs: New Opportunities for Engagement Abound

  • This event has ended.


While much of the nation is focused on the possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act and/or the enactment of the American Health Care Act, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) has the potential to quietly transform the health care system. Old models and methods are being transformed by a new focus on value, accountability, integration, and the social determinants of health. A bipartisan law passed in 2015, MACRA is in its first year of implementation.

On this web seminar, a renowned health care economist and researcher will discuss the new economic incentives facing providers, with a particular focus on the organizational and sustainability implications for CBOs. Major public policy initiatives and private sector payment models will be discussed, and tips and tools for staying on top of key changes in the field will be shared.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand key health care policy and payment reforms that are relevant to AAA’s and other CBO’s operations;
  • Explain why addressing the social determinants of health is an important and sought-after capacity for health care providers and payers; and
  • Identify tools and strategies for how organizations can stay up-to-date with critical state and federal policy changes, to ensure a proactive response to any opportunities they represent.
