Quality Payment Program

The Quality Payment Program (QPP) combined existing quality reporting programs into one system. The QPP reformed Medicare Part B payments to improve care across the health care delivery system. There are 2 paths that providers can choose and use to report quality data to CMS:

Mips and apms

Are you in a small or rural practice?

Practices with 15 or fewer clinicians, including those in rural locations, practices in health professional shortage areas and medically underserved areas are a crucial part of the health care system. MACRA provides direct technical assistance to help individual MIPS eligible clinicians and small practices in these settings.
