QPP Participation Status Tool Now Includes Second Snapshot of 2019 Qualifying APM Participant and MIPS APMs Data


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its Quality Payment Program Participation Status Tool based on the second snapshot of data from Alternative Payment Model (APM) entities. The second snapshot includes data from Medicare Part B claims with dates of service between January 1, 2019 and June 30, 2019.
The tool includes 2019 Qualifying APM Participant (QP) and Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) APM participation status.

To learn more about how CMS determines QP and APM participation status for each snapshot, please view the QP Methodology Fact Sheet.
