Doctors Advocate to Further Improve the Quality Payment Program
Posted on: 6/13/2019

ISMS recently joined with 120 other state and national medical organizations to urge Congress to make further refinements to the Quality Payment Program (QPP) in order to improve the program and ensure physicians can be successful going forward.

While QPP is an improvement over the former sustainable growth rate formula payment model, the program is far from perfect. We continually monitor the program implementation and push for improvements and modifications. 

Specifically, we are asking Congress to:

  • Implement positive payment adjustments for physicians to replace the payment freeze over the next six years
  • Extend the Advanced APM bonus payments for an additional six years
  • Implement several additional technical improvements to MACRA
