    MACRA changes deemed likely to survive new administration

     

    These regulations can sound daunting, but “I’m not discouraged at all by all these changes,” Dr. Williams said.

    She remembers physicians bemoaning the Resource-Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS) when it was instituted.

    And she pointed out that the American Medical Association opposed the creation of Medicare altogether.

    “Physicians thought it would the end of the universe, and Medicare was actually really good for ophthalmology particularly,” she said.

    The future is bright for the profession, she concluded.

    “We all know the aging demographic,” she said. “We’re going to have more work than we can handle. And our real job is to take care of the growing deluge of patients coming through.”
