An Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) is one of two pathways physicians can choose to participate in the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Qualifying as an Advanced APM may exempt clinicians from participation in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and they may be eligible to receive an incentive payment. It is a payment approach that rewards providers for delivering high-quality and cost-efficient care.
For successful participation in the Advanced APM, participants will learn:
• CMS Criteria for Advanced APM participation
• Pros and cons of APM participation
• Practical tips for addressing challenges and developing or partnering in an Advanced APM
• How to access free technical assistance available to support you with MIPS and/or APM option
