2018 Quality Payment Program (QPP) Performance Results

2018 Quality Payment Program (QPP) Performance Results

Posted on Monday, January 13, 2020 2:17 PM

In 2015, Congress passed the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act – or MACRA. The law created a Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) but many clinician stakeholders find the system confusing.

Once President Trump too office, CMS began looking at ways to reduce government red tape.  Patients over Paperwork (PoP) sought clinician input through requests for information, listening sessions, and interviews, and they’ve asked us to tell them ways to get rid of the needless, duplicative paperwork that keeps them from caring for their patients.

“Through PoP and a related initiative called Meaningful Measures, we’ve focused on improving quality measurement for doctors. This year, we were excited to finalize our MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs) proposal in our 2020 Physician Fee Schedule final rule that would transform the MIPS program into one that engages clinicians and specialty societies, to craft measures that assess them on what matters most – outcomes.

While our MVP framework becomes effective in 2021, we’re still committed to implementing the current version of MIPS. To that end, earlier this year, we released preliminary participation data for clinicians eligible to participate in MIPS. We are pleased to announce that our participation rates for 2018 exceeded our participation rates in 2017, the first year of the program. We now have additional performance results for the MIPS 2018 performance year and we are excited to share them with you.”
