The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has revamped the look of the Quality Payment Program website and posted new resources to help you successfully participate in your first year of the Quality Payment Program.
CMS encourages you to visit the website to review the following new resources:
- MIPS Quick Start Guide Outlines the steps MIPS clinicians need to take between now and March 2018 to prepare for and participate in MIPS, including checking participation status, choosing to participate as an individual or as part of a group, deciding how to submit data, and selecting measures and activities.
- Medicare Shared Savings Program and Quality Payment Program Fact Sheet Explains how the Shared Savings Program and the Quality Payment Program align reporting requirements for participating Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and MIPS clinicians, and how certain tracks in Shared Savings Program ACOs meet Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) criteria under the Quality Payment Program.
- MIPS APM Fact Sheet Provides an overview of a specific type of APM, called a “MIPS APM,” and the special APM scoring standard used for those in MIPS APMs.
