New Resource on the 2019 Qualifying APM Participant Methodology

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a new 2019 Qualifying Alternative Payment Model Participants (QPs) Methodology Fact Sheet for the 2019 performance year. This release is specific to participants in Alternative Payments Models (APMs), MIPS APMs, and Advanced APMs. This fact sheet details how CMS determines which eligible clinicians are QPs and makes predictive QP determinations. Alongside the QP Methodology Fact Sheet, CMS has released the predictive APM data that helps clinicians understand their predictive status based on data from January 1, 2018 through August 31, 2018.
