Title: 

The Quality Payment Program: How to Navigate Advanced APMs and the Merit-based Incentive Payment System

 

Description:

2018 is the second year of the government’s Quality Payment Program, yet confusion reigns. Is your orthopaedic practice ready for this phase? Millions of dollars of incentive funds are available to physicians and other eligible clinicians for “exceptional” performance – and even more in penalties is at stake for lack of performance.  

Professional services reimbursement expert Elizabeth Woodcock gives you the skinny on what the second year of the program will entail – and how your orthopaedic practice can prepare, guiding you through the important information you must know.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the evolution of the “advanced alternative payment model” – and the pros and cons of joining one.   
  • Determine the four categories of reporting for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) – and what it will take to successfully participate in each of them.
  • Recognize the implications of the failure to participate, based on penalties that will be applied.
