    ASCO will present a free webinar, "MACRA: Learn the Basics, Get Ready for a Post-SGR World," featuring a high-level overview of the Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2015 from 4 - 5:30 p.m. EST. The law replaced the Sustainable Growth Rate formula for updates to the Medicare physician fee schedule and lays out comprehensive changes on an ambitious implementation schedule. Learn about changes coming soon to reimbursement and reporting activities for oncology practices throughout the United States--making now the time for practices to prepare.   

    The webinar will be presented by ASCO Senior Director of Clinical Affairs Stephen Grubbs, MD, and ASCO Director of Coverage and Reimbursement Sybil Green, JD, RPh. As your partner in preparing for full MACRA implementation and ensuring high-quality care for patients with cancer, ASCO will provide a wide range of continually updated resources and tools designed to help practicing oncologists satisfy MACRA requirements and move toward a value-based practice environment--including the Dec. 15 webinar.

    Registration for the webinar is now open. If you have any questions or comments about the webinar or MACRA implementation, please contactmacra@asco.org.
