Under current law, clinicians in Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs) receive an incentive payment on their Medicare professional services revenue if they meet a specified participation threshold each year between 2019 and 2024. Meeting this threshold also exempts clinicians from participation in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System. The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) is scheduled to discuss a policy option for revising the Advanced APM incentive payment during their public meeting on Thursday, November 1.
The MedPAC meeting agenda is available here.
MedPAC is an independent congressional agency established by the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 (P.L. 105-33) to advise the US Congress on issues affecting the Medicare program. More information on MedPAC is available on their website.
