SIS Reviewing Newly Released Medicare Quality Payment Program Rule

Wednesday, June 28, 2017  

On June 20, 2017, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a proposed rule for the 2018 Quality Payment Program. A cursory review reveals that the proposal contains provisions that will likely minimize the number of physicians who face penalties under the program, addressing concerns raised by physician groups including SIS.

The SIS Health Policy Division is reviewing the rule, and in the coming weeks SIS Members can expect the Society’s summary and if necessary, a comment letter to address potential issues. The full text of the proposed rule can be downloaded from the U.S. Federal Register, and a CMS fact sheet is currently available.
