KENTUCKY REGIONAL EXTENSION CENTER

 

The 2022 Program update for the Quality Payment Program has been released in the latest Physician Fee Schedule Notice for Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). Our experts at the Kentucky REC will host a webinar on all of the updates to the Quality Payment Program MIPS track, and the Alternative Payment Model pathway.

CMS is moving from a siloed approach with individual categories, to a more aligned program using pathways for Alternative Payment Models (APMs). As expected, CMS is also providing more guidance in the MIPS Pathway model. Going forward, the MIPS pathway will include population health measures, promoting interoperability, and other measures that impact chronic health conditions.

During our webinar we will share:

  • proposed updates to the MIPS Pathway model
  • proposed updates to Alternative Payment Models (APMs)
  • the ending of the transition years of the program
  • alterations in quality measures that can be reported
  • changes in who is considered an eligible clinician
