Pick Your Pace

  • Participation in 2017 will impact Medicare payments when Quality Payment Program (QPP) payment adjustments take effect in 2019. That's why CMS deemed 2017 a transition year, allowing physicians to "Pick Your Pace".

Technical assistance available

  • Physicians transitioning to Medicare's new QPP will have access to several technical assistance programs to help you participate in one of the two payment tracks. CMS encourages all eligible clinicians to access the QPP Service Center. The service center will assess your needs and determine the appropriate technical assistance program. Learn more about the technical assistance programs.
