A Message to the CHITREC Community Regarding Our COVID-19 Actions

More New Quality Payment Program Resources Available

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has recently posted more new resources to help clinicians successfully participate in the first year of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

CMS encourages MIPS clinicians to visit the Quality Payment Program website to review the following new resources:

Predictive Qualifying APM Participants (QP)

CMS announced predictive Qualifying APM Participant (QP) status for 2017 Advanced APMs. A Quality Payment Program programmatic goal is to provide clear communication around clinicians’ QP status. In support of this goal, we stated that we would supply 2017 Advanced APM eligible clinicians with a predictive QP status based on historical claims. By looking at historical Part B claims data, CMS predicts that nearly 100% of eligible clinicians in Advanced APMs with data currently available will be QPs in the performance year 2017.
