The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) ended the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula for determining how CMS pays physicians for their services. SGR was considered flawed and outdated. MACRA requires CMS to implement a payment incentive program, the Quality Payment Program. There are 2 ways clinicians can choose to participate in the Quality Payment Program based on their practice size, specialty, location, or patient population:
- The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS): If you’re a MIPS eligible clinician, you’ll be subject to a performance-based payment adjustment through MIPS.
- Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs): If you decide to take part in an Advanced APM, you may earn a Medicare incentive payment for sufficiently participating in an innovative payment model.
StreamlineMD clients generally choose to follow the MIPS program.
