Frequently asked questions

  • What is MACRA?

    MACRA is the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, which is legislation that replaced the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR). It outlines a new program for physician reimbursement that replaces fee-for-service with value-based payments under the Quality Payment Program (QPP).

  • What is the Quality Payment Program?

    The QPP is the portion of MACRA that defines the new value-based reimbursement system. It has two parts: the Merit-Based Incentive Program (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs). The QPP replaces and consolidates the current Medicare Meaningful Use, PQRS, and value-based modifier programs.

  • Who participates in the QPP?

    The following provider types must participate in the QPP in either MIPS or APMs: physician (doctor of medicine or osteopathy, dental surgery or dental medicine, podiatric medicine, or optometry; chiropractor), physician assistant, nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, certified registered nurse anesthetist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, clinical psychologist, qualified speech-language pathologist, qualified audiologist, and registered dietitian or nutritional professional.

  • Do I need a certified EHR to participate in the Quality Payment Program?

    Yes, for both MIPS and the APMs, you need a certified EHR. Starting in 2018, the EHR must be 2015 Edition certified.

  • Are there exceptions to the eligible provider?

    Yes, there are two exceptions applications available to clinicians in the 2021 performance year: the Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Exception and the MIPS Promoting Interoperability Performance Category Hardship Exception.
