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.
