The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has recently revamped the look of the Quality Payment Program website and also posted new resources to help clinicians successfully participate in the first year of the Quality Payment Program.

 

CMS encourages clinicians to visit the website to review the following new resources:

MIPS Quick Start Guide: Outlines the steps MIPS clinicians need to take between now and March 2018 to prepare for and participate in MIPS, including checking participation status, choosing to participate as an individual or as part of a group, deciding how to submit data, and selecting measures and activities.

 

Medicare Shared Savings Program and Quality Payment Program Fact Sheet: Explains how the Shared Savings Program and the Quality Payment Program align reporting requirements for participating Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and MIPS clinicians, and how certain tracks in Shared Savings Program ACOs meet Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) criteria under the Quality Payment Program.

 

MIPS APM Fact Sheet: Provides an overview of a specific type of APM, called a “MIPS APM,” and the special APM scoring standard used for those in MIPS APMs.

 

To get the latest information, visit the CME Quality Payment Program website. The Quality Payment Program Service Center can also be reached at 1-866-288-8292 (TTY 1-877-715- 6222), available Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM-8:00 PM ET or via email at QPP@cms.hhs.gov.
