Medicare Quality Payment Program

    • Medicare Quality Payment Program

      The Quality Payment Program (QPP) was first implemented in 2017. The vast majority of physicians who see Medicare Part B patients participate in the QPP through the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). MIPS streamlines quality, cost, electronic health record and practice improvement reporting requirements into a single program that uses a single performance score to determine payment adjustments. Bonuses or penalties associated with MIPS performance in 2019 will be applied to Part B payments in 2021.

      This document highlights the QPP requirements for 2019.
