CMS issues APM incentive payment advisory for clinicians

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services today advised clinicians in the Medicare Quality Payment Program who earned but did not receive an alternative payment model incentive payment in calendar year 2021 based on CY 2019 performance to update their billing information by Nov. 1 so it can disburse their payment. CMS was unable to verify current Medicare billing information for some qualifying APM participants when it disbursed the CY 2021 APM incentive payments. The advisory provides information on how these clinicians can update their billing information to receive their incentive payments. Additional information including a fact sheet and list of clinicians is available on CMS' QPP website.
