4. When will this affect me?

MACRA is slated to begin the payment adjustments in 2019, however the performance measurements will actually start in January 2017. At this point, however, the final details (including metrics) are still being determined and are slated for finalization in fall of 2016. Currently there is opportunity for public comment until June 26, 2016 at:

5. Where do I get more information?

CMS has detailed information on its website. Additionally, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Physicians, and the American Medical Association offer information as well as toolkits for MACRA readiness to their members which can be accessed through their websites.
