Through the Quality Payment Program (QPP), CMS has tied improvement of quality outcomes to all Medicare reimbursement. Clinicians will be required to participate in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment Program (MIPS) or a qualified Advanced Payment Model (APM) in order to avoid a significant negative payment adjustment on Medicare reimbursement. In this session, CMS will review the quality measures and performance thresholds that providers must meet in order to avoid a negative payment adjustment.
Review the MIPS quality reporting requirements for EHR users
Identify performance thresholds for APM requirements
Explain how alternative payment model quality measure sets that do not qualify as a QPP APM (for example, CMS ACO 1's from 2016) align with the MIPS quality measure sets
