On October 14, 2016, CMS published the final rule that outlines its implementation of MACRA value-based payment reform starting in 2017. The new framework is called the Quality Payment Program (QPP). In 2017, clinicians and health care leaders must develop strategies to position their organizations for financial success under the new Quality Payment Program.
Beginning in 2017, CMS will start rewarding clinicians for their delivery of high-quality patient care through one of two pathways: (1) payment of incentives for participation in Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs); or (2) application of a positive or negative adjustment pursuant to the clinician's performance under the new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). In the 2017 performance year, CMS is providing flexibility to clinicians by allowing them to pick their pace of participation. Through three flexible options to submit data under MIPS and a fourth option to join an Advanced APMs, CMS intends to ensure they will not trigger a negative payment adjustment in 2019.
This webinar with expert speaker Joseph Wolfe will focus on the Quality Payment Program, its pathways and potential options for clinicians as they navigate the QPP during the 2017 transition year and beyond. In this session, Joseph will provide an overview of the Quality Payment Program, including its MIPS and Advanced APM pathways. He will help clinicians and health care leaders navigate the 2017 transition year and beyond, by providing a practical, straight-forward understanding of the key provisions and options available for them.
