    As an OMGMA Partner and Exhibitor, there is an opportunity for you to participate in these events in multiple ways. First, we need financial support, in the form of Sponsorship for these events which will include the speaker, venue, breakfast, and the networking time at the end of each outreach event. Sponsorship of the MTO events is an opportunity for you as our Partner and Exhibitor to collaborate with us in providing these valuable networking and educational opportunities while having your company included in marketing and presentation materials.

    Additionally, we need high quality speakers to come to these events and present valuable information to medical managers. Many of you have connections to great speakers in the community, and we would like to collaborate with you to bring them to these events. The topics needs to be enticing enough for a manager to leave their busy office and staff for the morning to further their education.

    Sponsorship* for each event is $3000. This can be one, exclusive sponsor covering the entire event for $3,000 or up to three sponsors providing $1000 each in financial support.

    Please join us in our educational endeavors and in setting the stage for the National MGMA group to see Oregon as a leader in the area of regional outreach.

    *Each Sponsorship includes attendance and lunch for up to two (2) representatives at the sponsored MTO. Due to high demand for these sponsorships in 2017, we are limiting any one organization to a total of 2 sponsorships to allow more partners and exhibitors to participate. Should we fail to fill all sponsorships in all locations, we will contact your organization if you are interested in purchasing an additional sponsorship. Sponsorships will be assigned on a first registered with payment in full basis.

    Our committee looks forward to joining you in these upcoming MTO events.  Thank you for your support.

    Maximizing Performance and Reimbursement: Navigating the CMS QPP

    This webinar is FREE for OMGMA members!

    Members - to register for this webinar, login from our Home page and then proceed to the Members Only page for the registration link.

    ABOUT THE WEBINAR:

    The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) required the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to implement the Quality Payment Program (QPP) for physicians, which rewards value and outcomes in one of two ways: Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs). With a significant future portion of Medicare Part B reimbursement tied to quality and cost performance, it is critical for medical groups to understand QPP rules and regulations to ensure the best performance and maximum reimbursement. This presentation will provide an overview of MIPS and APMs, outline proposed QPP changes for CY 2019 performance period, and offer practical advice to medical groups on how to succeed in QPP. In addition, we will discuss how to understand and use MIPS Feedback for CY 2017 performance period to drive future performance and reimbursement.

    After this presentation, you will be able to:

    • Understand the main components of Quality Payment Program (QPP) for physicians.
    • Develop effective process for QPP measures selection, data collection and submission.
    • Use MIPS Feedback for CY 2017 performance period to drive future performance and reimbursement.
