QPP Participation Status Tool Now Includes First Snapshot of 2020 Qualifying APM Participant and MIPS APMs Data.

Quality Payment Program

On July 20, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its Quality Payment Program Participation Status Tool based on the first snapshot of data from the Alternative Payment Model (APM) entities. The first snapshot includes data from Medicare Part B claims with dates of service between January 1, 2020, and March 31, 2020. The tool includes 2020 Qualifying APM Participant (QP) and Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) APM participation status.

To learn more about how CMS determines QP and the APM participation status for each snapshot, please visit the Advanced APMs webpage on the QPP website.
