CMS will host a webinar on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 to answer frequently asked questions about the Quality Payment Program from the 2018 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS18) Annual Conference & Exhibition and inquiries received by the Quality Payment Program Service Center. Then, phone lines will be opened to take questions.

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) ended the Sustainable Growth Rate formula, which would have resulted in a significant cut to payment rates for clinicians participating in Medicare. MACRA requires CMS by law to implement an incentive program, referred to as the Quality Payment Program, which provides two participation tracks for clinicians:

  • The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)
  • Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs)

Target Audience: Medicare Part B fee-for-service clinicians; office managers and administrators; state and national associations that represent healthcare providers; and other stakeholders.
