On December 28, 2017, the Spine Intervention Society (SIS) submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the CY 2018 Updates to the Quality Payment Program; and Quality Payment Program: Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstance  Policy for the Transition Year; 42 CFR Part 414 [CMS-5522-FC  and  IFC].

SIS acknowledges CMS's efforts to provide significant regulatory relief and expansion of opportunities for solo and small practices. The letter outlines a number of concerns and suggestions relative to challenges CMS faces in implementing the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APMs).

SIS will continue to monitor CMS rule-making activities to comment on behalf of interventional spine care physicians.
