SIS Comments on the Medicare Quality Payment Program 2018 Final Rule

Tuesday, January 2, 2018  

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.
