The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) was signed into law in 2015. The legislation established the Quality Payment Program (QPP), which aims to shift Medicare payment from volume to value by creating two payment tracks: the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (AAPMs).
Employed physicians are likely to report to MIPS as part of a group with MIPS payment adjustments applied at the national provider identifier (NPI) level. Therefore, their practice’s QPP strategy will impact them in several ways. This supplement guides employed physicians to learn more about their practice’s QPP strategy.
