The next installment of ASCO’s webinar series on the Quality Payment Program (QPP) will take place Monday, June 19 at 4:00 p.m. ET. The webinar, entitled Quality Payment Program: Scoring for Advancing Care Information and Improvement Activities, will help participants understand QPP’s Advancing Care Information and Improvement Activities Attestation measures. These measures make up two of the four categories that determine a Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) score, and ultimately participants’ Medicare Part B reimbursement.
QPP, established by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), is being implemented in oncology practices across the country. 2017 is a transition year with minimal reporting requirements, but starting in 2018, quality reporting will require a significantly heavier lift to avoid financial penalties. Make sure your practice is prepared by registering for the June 19 webinar. Registration is also open for ASCO’s July 10 webinar on optimizing your MIPS score.
