Having had the opportunity to speak across the nation regarding the new Medicare quality payment program, I soon realized how emotionally charged our colleagues are about the concept of “one more thing.” One more thing…added to the list of all the other things we have to deal with or at least should deal with; but that, frankly, our profession isn’t dealing with. What am I talking about? Regulations that affect the healthcare industry, and we are in the crosshairs because we are health care professionals, defined as “physicians” in many states (including Medicare) and our practices are affected by it. This cold, hard fact rings true for many practices that have experienced post-payment audits and recoupments, HIPAA violations with fines and public reporting.
