CMS Releases Guidance on QPP Year 2 Participation

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), recently released an infographic covering details about provider participation in 2018, year 2 of the Quality Payment Program (QPP).

The infographic offers valuable information on QPP participation including a link to the CMS QPP Participations Status Tool, which providers can use to check qualifying APM participant status and whether they are eligible to participate in MIPS in 2018. It also lends assistance with essential information about important dates and deadlines, performance categories and weights, linked overview articles, and technical assistance about MIPS and APM for providers.

See the ACR Quality Payment Program webpage for more information on the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and QPP alternative payment models. Questions may be directed to Judy Burleson, MHSA, the ACR’s senior director of quality management programs at jburleson@acr.org.
