ACTION ALERT: Proposed Medicare Rules Dangerous to Patients and Their Doctors. Tell CMS to Cease Implementation of MACRA. Sold by many as "SGR repeal," the 300 page Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 (HR 2) has spawned a 962 page CMS proposed rule implementing the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APM).
