QPP Website has been Updated with Initial Qualifying APM Participants

Under the Quality Payment Program (QPP), eligible clinicians who meet certain criteria are considered Qualifying APM Participants (QPs) in Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs), and are, therefore, excluded from the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) quality reporting program, and will receive a 5% lump sum Medicare incentive payment.

A significant priority of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for the QPP has been to provide eligible clinicians with their QP status as soon as possible to minimize confusion and provide clarity on what providers need to do to meet program requirements.

The QPP website has been updated to communicate results based on Advanced APM participation as of the first QP snapshot on March 31, 2017. To view the update, click here.

CMS has also created a fact sheet with more information on the process and methodology that it uses to identify eligible clinicians. It is available here.
