In 2017 PQRS became a "legacy" program and was rolled into the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)—which, in turn, is part of the new Quality Payment Program (QPP) created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). Under the new QPP, providers can opt to participate in 1 of 2 tracks: MIPS or Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs).
