Program Overview & Updates

First implemented in 2017, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) authorized the Quality Payment Program (QPP). The QPP provides two pathways for physicians to receive negative, neutral or positive adjustments to their Medicare Part B covered professional services payments. These pathways are the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs).

For those familiar with the program, ASA has developed a quick resource guide to help you find the relevant materials and documents for 2020.
