The American Medical Association (AMA) reports that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a ‘MACRA – Flexibilities and support for small practices’ fact sheet that outlines aspects of the proposed MACRA regulation that were intended to address the needs of smaller physician practices…[AMA says it] explains that the rather alarming impact table projecting a disproportionately severe impact on solo physicians and small groups is based on misleading data.” 
 
AMA says its “staff are working to identify refinements that could be made to the proposed rule to provide further relief and assistance to smaller practices. Those will be included in [AMA’s] formal comments that will be submitted to CMS in late June.”
