SIS Nominations to New MACRA Episode-Based Cost Measure Clinical Spine Subcommittee Accepted

Monday, April 16, 2018  

The Spine Intervention Society (SIS) congratulates Drs. Allen Chen, Byron Schneider, and Virtaj Singh on their appointments to serve on a Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) Episode-Based Cost Measure Clinical Subcommittee. SIS nominated these members to participate in the newly formed Musculoskeletal Disease Management – Spine Subcommittee and their expertise will be used to develop fair episode-based cost measures.

The objectives of the clinical subcommittees are to define episode of care groups and associated episode-based costs measures for potential use in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) cost performance category, under the Quality Payment Program established by MACRA. Episode-based cost measures represent the cost to Medicare for the items and services provided to a patient during an episode of care. Subcommittee members are clinicians with expertise directly relevant to the episode groups.
