More than 20,000 clinicians will receive between 6.6% and 19.9% more on their Medicare physician fee schedule payments in 2018 due to high performance on quality and cost measures in 2016 under the final value modifier adjustment, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced today. The Quality Payment Program’s Merit-based Incentive Payment System will replace the value modifier adjustment for clinicians beginning in 2019.
