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.
