While the Senate health care bill is dominating health care news, CMS has released an important proposal that will affect physicians next year and beyond.
Unless they are otherwise exempt, physicians must participate in QPP to avoid receiving payment penalties.
Delegates want to maintain patient treatment during changes in coverage and to address out-of-network payment and billing issues.
Whether practicing solo or in a group, it’s an easy way for physicians to determine whether they must report data this year to avoid future pay cuts.
CMS pairs participation bonus with less risk to get more small practices into Medicare ACOs. May 31 is the deadline to give notice of intent to apply.
