Eligible clinicians can check the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Participation Status Tool to view their 2018 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) Qualified Participant (QP) status. The tool has been updated with data from Medicare Part B claims with dates of service between January 1 and August 31, 2018. A fourth snapshot date, December 31, will apply to participants of the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
Eligible clinicians who qualify as a QP based on their participation in an Advanced APM are eligible to earn a five percent inventive bonus and are exempt from participating in MIPS. A comprehensive list of Advanced APMs is available here.
More information on the QPP is available on the CMS QPP website.
