The Doctor’s Advocate | Third Quarter 2017
In an ever-evolving healthcare environment, we stay on top of the latest regulations, including the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
Our latest offering is a new web resource that includes answers to frequently asked questions, articles, and other valuable information for doctors and practice managers. The comprehensive Q&A document was created by our subsidiary Medical Advantage Group, which works with medical practices to implement personalized, practical solutions to achieve results—so physicians can spend their time caring for patients. We are pleased to share their expertise with you.
Find answers to your MACRA questions at thedoctors.com/macra.
The Doctor’s Advocate is published by The Doctors Company to advise and inform its members about loss prevention and insurance issues.
The guidelines suggested in this newsletter are not rules, do not constitute legal advice, and do not ensure a successful outcome. They attempt to define principles of practice for providing appropriate care. The principles are not inclusive of all proper methods of care nor exclusive of other methods reasonably directed at obtaining the same results.
The ultimate decision regarding the appropriateness of any treatment must be made by each healthcare provider considering the circumstances of the individual situation and in accordance with the laws of the jurisdiction in which the care is rendered.
The Doctor’s Advocate is published quarterly by Corporate Communications, The Doctors Company. Letters and articles, to be edited and published at the editor’s discretion, are welcome. The views expressed are those of the letter writer and do not necessarily reflect the opinion or official policy of The Doctors Company. Please sign your letters, and address them to the editor.
