A variety of programs have been developed to address value-based care payment, including the Medicare Quality Payment Program (QPP).
Certain PTs in private practice will be required to participate in the QPP program through either the Merit-Based Payment System (MIPS) OR Advanced Alternate Payment Models (APMs) beginning January 2020. Additionally, CMS has proposed to allow certain other PTs and physical therapy practices to opt in to the program, enabling them to earn incentive payments and to prepare for participation in Advanced APMs.
