The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has updated its alternative payment model participation status tool for the 2018 Quality Payment Program, which identifies eligible clinicians who qualify as advanced APM participants based on Medicare Part B claims data through June. Qualifying clinicians are exempt from participating in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System and eligible for a 5 percent APM incentive payment in 2020. CMS expects to update the tool by yearend to include claims data through August, the end of the 2018 qualifying period. For more information, see the CMS factsheet.
