Final reminder: ACP's Quality Payment Advisor helps clinicians navigate the Quality Payment Program

The program also assists with identifying quality metrics to report and the various ways to submit data to CMS.


The reporting deadline for CMS’ Quality Payment Program is March 31, 2018. ACP's Quality Payment Advisor (QPA), a free online tool for ACP members, helps clinicians navigate CMS’ new Quality Payment Program and avoid a payment penalty in 2019.

The QPA helps determine how members should be reporting:

  • Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or Alternative Payment Models (APM)
  • Group or solo
  • Full year/partial year/test

The QPA also assists with identifying quality metrics to report and the various ways to submit data to CMS: registry, claims, or direct EHR submission.
