Slide 4 of 5
Third option: Participate for the full calendar year
For practices that are ready to go on January 1, 2017, physicians may choose to submit Quality Payment Program information for a full calendar year. This means their first performance period would begin on January 1. For example, if they submit information for the entire year on quality measures, how the practice uses technology, and what improvement activities the practice is undertaking, they could qualify for a modest positive payment adjustment. CMS has seen physician practices of all sizes successfully submit a full year’s quality data, and expect many will be ready to do so.
