CMS Releases MACRA/QPP Final Rule

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released its final rule this morning to implement the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).  The final rule establishes the regulatory framework of the Quality Payment Program and its two pathways: Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs) and the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

Most radiologists will be in the MIPS pathway of the QPP and many will likely be defined as “non-patient-facing” eligible clinicians.  The non-patient-facing determination will be applied to individuals who provide fewer than 100 patient-facing encounters (determined by codes listed in the future on QualityPaymentProgram.cms.gov), and groups with more than 75% of the individual NPIs billing under their TIN determined as non-patient-facing eligible clinicians.
