We recently issued a Health Law Alert on the Medicare Quality Payment Program, focusing specifically on what physicians and their medical practices need to know to be in compliance with the Program in 2017. The Alert may be accessed at this link: Fox Rothschild Health Law Alert – Medicare Quality Payment Program
You may also view some of our recent posts on the Physician Law Blog for more information on the Medicare Quality Payment Program. In short, compliance with the Program in 2017 can earn you and your practice anywhere from a 0%-4% increase in your reimbursements under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule in 2019. However, failure to meet at least the minimum level of compliance this year will result in a negative adjustment of 4% to your Medicare reimbursements in 2019.
Stay tuned to Fox Rothschild’s Physician Law Blog for updates on the Medicare Quality Payment Program in 2017 and beyond.
