Quality Payment Program-Small, Underserved and Rural

The Kentucky REC provides free, high-level assistance to eligible clinicians as they navigate participation in the Quality Payment Program (QPP). The Kentucky REC serves as the state-level coordinating entity for Kentucky under contract with CMS to help clinicians in small practices (with 15 or fewer Eligible Clinicians), especially those in rural or underserved areas, to participate in QPP.

The Kentucky REC also participates in a 7-state regional coalition led by the Altarum Institute and funded by CMS that has established the Quality Payment Program Resource Center™ to bring the best minds together across our region to identify issues and offer support to clinicians participating in QPP.

This includes:

  • Straightforward, self-directed resources and tools
