    Maximizing Performance and Reimbursement: Navigating the CMS QPP

    ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
    The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) required the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to implement the Quality Payment Program (QPP) for physicians, which rewards value and outcomes in one of two ways: Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs). With a significant future portion of Medicare Part B reimbursement tied to quality and cost performance, it is critical for medical groups to understand QPP rules and regulations to ensure the best performance and maximum reimbursement. This presentation will provide an overview of MIPS and APMs, outline proposed QPP changes for CY 2019 performance period, and offer practical advice to medical groups on how to succeed in QPP. In addition, we will discuss how to understand and use MIPS Feedback for CY 2017 performance period to drive future performance and reimbursement.

    After this presentation, you will be able to:
    1. Understand the main components of Quality Payment Program (QPP) for physicians.
    2. Develop effective process for QPP measures selection, data collection and submission.
    3. Use MIPS Feedback for CY 2017 performance period to drive future performance and reimbursement.
