The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released a proposed rule to update the Medicare Physician Quality Payment Program in 2018.

Clinicians’ 2018 performance will impact their 2020 Medicare fee-for-service payments for professional services. Key elements of the proposed rule include:
Physicians who are employed by health systems are encouraged to review the proposed rule to understand its potential impact on health system operations and reimbursement. MHA members with questions should contact Jason Jorkasky at the MHA.
