CMS Announces 2018 Value Modifier Results and Payment Adjustment Factor

Tuesday, January 30, 2018  

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the results of the 2018 Value Modifier and the adjustment factor that will be applied to clinicians receiving an upward payment adjustment. In 2018, over 20,000 clinicians will receive an increase of 6.6% to 19.9% on their Medicare physician fee schedule payments as a result of their high performance on quality and cost measures in 2016. The Value Modifier payment adjustment ends in 2018. The Merit-based Incentive Payment System under the new Quality Payment Program is replacing the Value Modifier.
