MACRA in the Year Ahead: Changes to the Quality Payment Program (QPP) in 2018

On November 2, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published its “CY 2018 Updates to the Quality Payment Program Final Rule with Comment” as well as an Interim Final Rule for “Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstance Policy for the Transition Year”. Updates to the Quality Payment Program (QPP) for 2018 will impact physician anesthesiologist participation in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) components as well as the Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs). Although the administration has emphasized burden reduction, changes to the rule may offer short-term relief in lieu of addressing some of the larger concerns ASA and physician anesthesiologists have experienced with the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) in 2017.
