Year 3 of the Quality Payment Program (MIPS and A-APM) brings with it a host of program updates, changes and complexity. In this session, Bruce Maki, Altarum Regulatory & Incentive Program Analyst, will review the 2019 MIPS rules and updates as well as answer attendee questions to ensure participants know what they need to successfully participate in 2019, protecting (and hopefully increasing) those valuable Medicare reimbursement rates.


Please join the QPP Resource Center® for an "Office Hours" webinar where we will be answering some of the most frequently asked questions surrounding the QPP. Our panelists for this presentation include: Rebecca Cheatham, Quality Improvement Advisor at the Kentucky Regional Extension Center (REC), Kelly Fountain, lead Quality Improvement Advisor and Health Information Technology (IT) Advisor at Kentucky REC; Bruce Maki, Regulatory Analyst and Project Manager for QPP Advisors at Altarum in Michigan, and Sam Ross, Health Informatics Facilitator at the Chicago Health IT REC.


The Cost performance category of MIPS, worth 15% of the Final Score in 2019, isn't well understood but in a few short years will be of equal weight to the Quality category. Join Beth Hickerson from Medical Advantage Group and Bruce Maki from Altarum as they break down the Cost category.


The Quality Payment Program (QPP) aims to provide pathways for managing risk and reward. Whether you're striving for a perfect score, skating by to avoid penalty, or debating whether to just take the penalty, this webinar seeks to offer a framework for approaching the risk-reward equation.
