The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the Calendar Year (CY) 2023 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) Proposed Rule for the 2023 performance year (PY) and beyond, on Thursday, July 7th, 2022. This notice for proposed rulemaking impacts not only the Quality Payment Program (QPP) but also proposes changes to the PFS, potentially expanding access to behavioral health services, ACOs, cancer screening, and dental care in rural and underserved areas.

Our experts at the Kentucky Regional Extension Center will host a webinar on August 17th at 12pm ET highlighting the proposed updates to the Quality Payment Program, including proposed changes to: MIPS Value Pathways (MVP), Traditional MIPS, Alternative Payment Model (APM) Performance Pathways (APP), and Advanced APMs.

Join us as we explore these programmatic challenges, and how to turn them into opportunities for improvement when you partner with the expert advisors at the Kentucky Regional Extension Center.

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 17th 12:00 – 1:00 PM ET
