Eligible clinicians and entities participating in state Medicaid payment arrangements may ask the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services through Nov. 1 to determine whether the arrangement qualifies as an advanced alternative payment model for performance year 2019 under the Quality Payment Program’s all-payer combination option. CMS recently released a list of Medicaid payment arrangements that will qualify and plans to update the list later this year. APM entities and eligible clinicians participating in other non-Medicare payment arrangements may submit determination requests in 2019.
