Friday, February 08, 2019 Check Your QPP Status (Again) Beginning this year, Medicare's Quality Payment Program (QPP) applies to qualifying physical therapists (PTs). Does that mean you? The US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has recently updated its QPP participation lookup resource to reflect the rules for 2019. APTA recommends that even if you've checked on your participation status before, you should revisit the site to see if anything has changed. The QPP and its Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) represent some of the most sweeping changes to PT reporting and payment in years—and all indications are that the models will likely include more PTs in the future. Get up to speed with this major shift through resources available at APTA's QPP webpage.
