The Physician-Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee will hold its first public meeting on February 1, 2016 in Washington, DC. More information on the meeting, including registration information, is available here.
The Committee was established by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). The purpose of the Committee is to provide comments and recommendations to the Secretary of Health and Human Services on physician-focused payment models. The Committee is scheduled to meet on a quarterly basis but once it starts receiving payment model proposals (anticipated in early 2017), the frequency of meetings will in large part be driven by the number and complexity of the payment models that have been proposed to them for consideration and evaluation. More information on the Committee is available here.
