Quality Payment Program

Network Overview

The Quality Payment Program was created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 and is a new approach to paying physicians and clinicians who treat Medicare beneficiaries. Under the Quality Payment Program, physicians and clinicians can choose from two payment paths: the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or the Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs).

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is merging aspects of the Physician Quality Reporting System, the Value Modifier Program and the Medicare Electronic Health Record Incentive Program to create MIPS. Beginning in 2019, MIPS will pay eligible physicians and clinicians for providing care based on four performance categories: advancing care information, improvement activities, cost and quality.

Join the Quality Payment Program Network

Our consultants will work with eligible physicians and clinicians throughout Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico and Texas to help them transition to MIPS and successfully advance through the program’s performance categories by providing technical assistance, education, outreach and distribution of learning modules.

We will also support members of our network with quality reporting and identifying opportunities to improve care coordination and performance improvement on measures used in MIPS, which will enable a smooth transition later into the Advanced APMs.
