CMS: New Quality Payment Program Resources Available
In an effort to keep all stakeholders informed and on the right track regarding participation in the new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) continually updates educational materials for providers. Those new materials are as follows:
- MIPS Participation Fact Sheet: Provides information about who is eligible to participate in MIPS, and how clinicians might be able to participate voluntarily in the program.
- MIPS Improvement Activities Fact Sheet: Includes information about choosing and submitting improvement activities, reporting criteria, and scoring.
- 2017 CMS-Approved Qualified Registries: Includes the qualified registries that will be able to report data for the Quality, Advancing Care Information, and Improvement Activities performance categories in 2017.
For questions regarding MIPS, contact Kay. J. Moyer
