What is the Quality Payment Program?
Quality Payment Program is the name given to the new Medicare value-based reimbursement system. The program has two tracks for participation: MIPS and APM
What are APMs?
MACRA allows providers who take further steps towards transforming healthcare to be exempt from MIPS and participate in Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs).
