The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has released a list of Medicaid payment arrangements that will qualify as advanced Alternative Payment Models for performance year 2019 under the Quality Payment Program’s all-payer combination option. CMS plans to update the list and release similar lists for Medicare Advantage and other plans later this year. State Medicaid agencies, Medicare health plans and payers participating in CMS multi-payer models may submit information about their payment arrangements with eligible clinicians to determine if they qualify for the all-payer option for a given performance year. Eligible clinicians and APM entities participating in the payment arrangement also may ask the agency to determine whether the arrangement qualifies.
