Quality Payment Program Year Two Now Underway

Jan. 16, 2018

Stay informed on what to expect and on how this year impacts your practice.

Here’s what you need to know for Quality Payment Program (QPP) year two (2018):

Last month, AGA provided comments on a final rule with comment period describing changes to the 2018 QPP, which includes MIPS. While we support many of the policies included in the final rule, AGA opposes CMS’ decision to increase the weight of the cost performance category to 10 percent for year two. AGA also continues to oppose CMS policies that make it more difficult for gastroenterologists to perform well under MIPS. We continue to work with Medicare to improve and reduce the burden of QPP for you.
