To help you decipher what this massive piece of legislation may mean to you and your practice, the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) has assembled links to helpful resources at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the American Medical Association (AMA) as well as other organizations with helpful information as it becomes available. We’re also developing our own educational resources to help you and your practice succeed – even thrive – in the age of MACRA and QPP. Watch the NCMS Bulletin and this page for updates.

The NCMS is working with a federally funded Practice Transformation Network (PTN) to offer educational workshops to help small practices, clinics and critical care hospitals currently unaffiliated with an accountable care organization (ACO) prepare for value-based payments. The National Rural Accountable Care Consortium (NRACC) and their partner, Caravan Health, offer workshops throughout the state, including at the NCMS Center for Leadership in Medicine in Raleigh.
