CMS Releases 2018 Medicare Quality Payment Program Proposed Rule

from SCAI

The Proposed Rule addresses participation requirements for 2018 and future years under the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Advanced Alternative Payment Model (Advanced APM) pathways created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). Under the proposal, CMS will continue to treat the 2018 performance year as another transition year of QPP and maintain program flexibility. Based on 2018 performance, clinicians and groups will be eligible to receive up to + / - 5 percent in bonuses or penalties on Medicare Part B services provided in 2020 under MIPS. Qualifying participants in an Advanced APM will be eligible to receive a five percent lump sum bonus. Comments are due on August 21, 2017. more
