CMS Releases Proposed Quality Payment Program Rule Summary
July 10, 2017 - CMS recently released an extensive 26-page summary of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) proposed rule detailing the most significant potential changes providers can expect should the rule go into effect.
QPP was designed primarily to improve health outcomes, reduce spending and administrative burden, and offer providers a fair and transparent payment system. However, the advent of the value-based payment system has caused some clinicians—specifically those working in small or rural practices—significant administrative strain due to stringent reporting requirements.
