CMS Changes MIPS and APMs in QPP Final Rule

CMS has released the CY2019 Quality Payment Program Final Rule. In this rule, CMS describes changes to policies for implementation of the third year for the Merit-Based Incentives Payment System (MIPS) and for Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs) including expansion of the cost category to 15 percent, required use of the 2015 CERT and the implementation of facility-based measures.

ACR volunteers and staff have created a brief preliminary summary of the radiology-specific provisions in the QPP final rule.

The College will provide a more detailed radiology-specific summary of the QPP rule in the coming days and weeks.
