CMS Released their proposed rule for the 2020 Quality Payment Program on July 30. It outlines many changes for Year 4 (Program Year 2020) of the QPP. These include:

  • increased performance thresholds
  • changes to the Quality and Cost Performance Categories
  • introducing a new framework – MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs)

The new framework is planned to become effective in Program Year 2021. It’s goals include aligning and connecting measures across the four performance categories, allowing more flexibility for specialty providers, and reducing data collection and reporting burdens.

During our webinar, we will examine the CMS Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) for Year 4 of the Quality Payment Program. We will discuss the major proposed changes, how they differ from Year 3 (Program Year 2019) requirements, and how these changes could impact clinician practices. The comment period for the CY 2020 Proposed Rule ends September 27, 2019, with the final rule expected Fall 2019.
