The Quality Payment Program was created by the enactment of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), which repealed the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) methodology for updates to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) and replaced it with a new approach to physician payment. The Quality Payment Program seeks to reward the delivery of high-quality patient care through two avenues: the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs) for eligible clinicians or groups under the Medicare program.
To find out if you are eligible for the program and need to submit data to MIPS for 2017, visit the CMS Quality Payment Program website for the latest information.
