Dr. Parang Parekh, an ophthalmologist and current chair of the Government Relations Committee for the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, wrote an OpEd in Morning Consult assessing the current state of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).  He calls for CMS to continue to work to keep the reimbursement rates current with the cost of providing care and offers ideas on how the program can be adjusted to encourage greater participation by specialties and thereby ensure Medicare patient access to specialty care.
